Dr Eamon F.X. Byrne
I am a postdoctoral research scientist in the Bioengineering Department at Stanford University. My research interests are primarily in the structural biology and molecular mechanisms of integral membrane proteins.
I completed my undergraduate degrees at the University of Melbourne (BSc (Hons), BA) with an honours research year in the Call Lab in Structural Biology at the Walter & Eliza Hall Institute for Medical Research (WEHI). I completed my DPhil in the Structural Biology Division (STRUBI) at the University of Oxford as a Clarendon Scholar and an Oxford-Radcliffe Graduate Scholar. My graduate research within the Siebold Lab focused on understanding the signalling mechanism of Smoothened, a transmembrane protein that is important for both embryonic development and the growth of certain skin and brain cancers. At Stanford I am working on creating new protein tools for neuroscience research within the Deisseroth Lab.
While living in Melbourne, I co-founded and was the first Managing Director of Teachabout Inc. (now Titjimbat Gija), a not-for-profit organisation that facilitates school holiday programs in remote Northern Territory communities.
