Professor Malcolm McConville is an NHMRC Principal Research Fellow and Associate director of the Bio21 Institute of Molecular Science and Biotechnology at the University of Melbourne. His research group in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology utilizes a multidisciplinary approach to study the metabolism of human pathogens such as Leishmania, Plasmodium, Toxoplasma and mycobacteria. His group pioneered the development and application of metabolomic approaches to understand how intracellular pathogens survive in host cells, with the view of identifying new drug targets for pathogen and host-directed therapies. He is currently Convenor of the NCRIS funded Metabolomics Australia national network.
