Dr

Christopher McDevitt

 

Christopher obtained his PhD in Microbiology and Biochemistry from the University of Queensland, Australia. He then spent six years as a postdoctoral researcher studying membrane transport proteins in the laboratories of Prof. Ben Berks and A/Prof.

Richard Callaghan, at the University of Oxford, UK. In 2008, he moved to the Research Centre for Infectious Disease, University of Adelaide, to initiate a research program investigating membrane transporters and the chemical biology of Streptococcus pneumoniae. In 2012, he established an independent research group at Adelaide and, in 2015, was appointed to Deputy Director of the Centre. In 2018, he relocated his laboratory to the Department of Microbiology and Immunology, University of Melbourne.
