Personal profile

Biography

Professor Ray Norton holds a personal chair at the Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Parkville. His lab employs a range of biophysical approaches, including NMR, SPR, ITC and X-ray crystallography, in studies of peptide and protein toxins and malaria. One of the peptide toxins he works with is about  to enter phase II clinical trial for autoimmune diseases. He also applies a combination of structure-based and fragment-based drug discovery to protein targets in the areas of infectious and parasitic diseases and graft rejection. He is a former President of the Australian Society for Biophysics, the  Australian & New Zealand Society for Magnetic Resonance (ANZMAG) and the Lorne Conference on Protein Structure and Function. He is a member of the Council of the International Conference on Magnetic Resonance in Biological Systems (ICMRBS) and will assume the role of President in 2018.
