Personal profile

Biography

Lisa works in the School of Chemistry at Monash University as an Associate Professor

The Martin group uses a multi-disciplinary approach to answer research questions ranging from Inorganic Chemistry through to Chemical Biology. Our philosophy is that biology raises the questions and chemistry provides the solutions.

Of particular interest is the use of lipid membranes as a biomimetic material to explore activity, structure and function of (i) redox active membrane proteins, including protein assembly in membranes and (ii) peptide-membrane interactions; including anti-microbial peptides (AMP), carrier peptides (eg. Tat), insulin and neurodegenerative peptides that aggregate. We employ a wide range of physicochemical techniques combined with synthetic chemistry, molecular and electronic (redox) considerations in order to target biomedical problems. Thus our research applies novel, innovative and highly cross-disciplinary methodologies to exciting and challenging research problems; strong national and international collaborations are involved.
