报告人简介:
Dr Robyn Murphy is Head of the Department of Biochemistry and Genetics.
Dr Murphy obtained her PhD at Deakin University, Melbourne in 2003. She held a postdoctoral position in the Department of Zoology, La Trobe University and a National Health and Medical Research Council Biomedical Peter Doherty Early Career Research Fellowship (2006-2009). In 2010, Dr Murphy began her academic career as a Senior Lecturer then Associate Professor in the Department of Zoology. She joined the Department of Biochemistry and Genetics in 2015. She is a past National Secretary of the Australian Physiological Society (2010-2013), and is a current Council member.  She was appointed to the Research Group Executive for the International Biochemistry of Exercise (2012-current) and is an Executive member of the Sport, Exercise and Rehabilitation Research Focus Area, La Trobe University (2015-current).
Dr Murphy’s research team studies aspects of skeletal muscle biochemistry in health and disease, using exercise and disease models. The team uses microdissection techniques allowing them to isolate cellular changes by measuring proteins in segments of individual fibres. Such approaches allow issues with skeletal muscle heterogeneity to be overcome. Dr Murphy has published 70 research papers.
