Biography

Dr Mark Del Borgo is an internationally recognised member of the peptide science community with extensive experience in the pharmacological characterisation of peptides within various biological settings. Dr Mark Del Borgo received his PhD in pharmacology in 2005 from the University of Melbourne and immediately became a research fellow in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Queensland (2005-2007). He then took up a teaching only position in the Department of Medicinal Chemistry at the University of Kansas (2007-2008). Since 2009, He has been a research fellow within the Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology at Monash University. He was the first person to demonstrate that peptides derived from β-amino acids are able to self-assemble into a wide range of fibrous materials (published in Angew. Chem. Int. Ed.). These materials form a platform technology with many applications in regenerative medicine, bioengineering and drug delivery that he envisages will be the focus of many high-quality publications and be of interest to commercial partners. He has recently been promoted to Senior Lecturer within the Department of Pharmacology and Head of the Macro Therapeutics Lab on the back of his rising profile.
