Dr David Dougan Senior Research Fellow, Biochemistry

David Dougan completed his PhD at the Division of Biomolecular Engineering, CSIRO (Melbourne) where he worked on antibody engineering. For his postdoctoral research he joined the lab of Prof. Bernd Bukau - first at the University of Freiburg where he developed his interest in AAA+ proteins and their modulation by adaptor proteins. After three years in Freiburg he moved to the ZMBH (Center for Molecular Biology Heidelberg) set in the picturesque town of Heidelberg where he took up a new appointment as a project leader in Prof. Bukau's lab continuing his work on adaptor proteins and regulated proteolysis in Escherichia coli.

In 2004, he was awarded a QEII Fellowship by the Australian Research Council (ARC) and returned to Australia to set up a joint lab with Dr. Kaye Truscott where he has continued his work on AAA+ proteins and their modulation by specific adaptor proteins, but with a new twist. Currently, David is an ARC Australian Research Fellow, and work in his lab is supported by the ARC.
