Robert J. Falconer
As a postgraduate I worked at the biotechnology companies Biotech Australia and GroPep working on expression and purification of recombinant proteins, process design and quality management. I went on to graduate with a PhD in process design from the Department of Chemical Engineering at The University of Adelaide in South Australia. I returned to the business sector working in production management at Diagnostic Systems Laboratories and Tuta Healthcare (medical diagnostics and medical device manufacturers, respectively). In 2003 I accepted a position as research coordinator at the Department of Chemical Engineering at The University of Cambridge where I undertook research on protein refolding and virus-like particle self-assembly. I then worked at the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (AIBN) at the University of Queensland, undertaking research on protein stability and protein-small molecule interactions using micro-calorimetry and a range of spectroscopy techniques.
In 2011 I was appointed by the Department of Chemical & Biological Engineering at the University of Sheffield as a senior lecturer.
