Paul Robert Fisher
I am Professor of Microbiology at La Trobe University here in Melbourne, Australia. I lecture to second year and third year science undergraduates and to 4th year (honours) students. Dr. Sarah Annesley and I together lead the Microbial Cell Biology Laboratory . In 2012 the group includes a research experience student, 2 Honours students, 9 Ph.D. students, a Research Assistant, Dr. Annesley and myself. Our main research interest is in studying the dysregulation of signalling pathways in brain disease using the cellular slime mould Dictyostelium discoideum as a model system.
