Biography

Dr Yuriev is a Senior Lecturer in Medicinal Chemistry at the Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences. Her work focuses  on innovations to improve learning and teaching of employability skills, with an emphasis on skill development in problem solving, collaboration, and study skills. Her achievements in education innovation have been recognised with numerous awards: Monash Parkville Student Association “First year Lecturer of the Year”, 2005, 2015 & 2017), Faculty of Pharmacy Teaching Excellence award (2007 & 2016), Vice-Chancellor's Teaching Excellence award (2006 & 2016), Monash Teacher Accelerator award (2016), and the Citation for Outstanding Contribution to Student Learning (The Australian Learning and Teaching Council, 2008). She is influencing the quality of pharmacy and science education through her scholarly research, mentoring, presentations, and publications. Elizabeth has published her findings in Journal of Chemical EducationChemistry Education Research and PracticeHigher Education Research & Development, and other journals.

Her original contributions to the field of molecular modelling include the development of (i) carbohydrate docking methodologies; (ii) novel site mapping approach for the investigation of ligand recognition; and (iii) docking and MD protocols for homology modelling of GPCRs and GPCR complexes. Elizabeth’s research outcomes include 90 research papers in peer-reviewed journals (38 in the last 5 years) and 5 book chapters. She has communicated 117 conference presentations. Drs Yuriev and Ramsland have co-edited the book “Structural Glycobiology”, Taylor & Francis Group/CRC press, London, 2012 (ISBN:9781439854600). Drs Yuriev and Agostino have co-edited the e-book "Structural and computational glycobiology – immunity and infection", Frontiers Media, 2015 (ISBN 9782889196388).
