Prof

Edmund Crampin

 

Professor Edmund Crampin is Rowden White Chair of Systems Biology at the University of Melbourne. Edmund directs the Systems Biology Lab at the School of Mathematics and Statistics and the Department of Biomedical Engineering, and is Adjunct Professor in the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences (School of Medicine).

The Systems Biology Lab is a highly collaborative group using mathematical and computer modelling to investigate cellular regulatory processes and biophysical mechanisms underlying complex human diseases, major challenges in biotechnology, and synthetic biology. The group is pioneering energy-based modelling approaches to describe and analyse cellular processes. Current projects include modelling heart cells to understand the development of heart disease; interactions between cells and nanoparticles; and studying the network of genetic interactions underlying breast and skin cancer. Edmund graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Physics from Imperial College London, and a DPhil in Applied Mathematics at the University of Oxford where his thesis topic was on biological pattern formation, advised by Professor Philip Maini FRS. Edmund was elected to a Junior Research Fellowship at Brasenose College Oxford and awarded a Wellcome Trust Research Fellowship to study mathematical models of heart disease, with Professor Denis Noble FRS. In 2003 Edmund moved from Oxford to New Zealand to establish the Systems Biology group at the Auckland Bioengineering Institute, in collaboration with Institute director Professor Peter Hunter FRS. Edmund moved to the University of Melbourne in 2013 to take up the Chair of Systems Biology.
