Dr Nichollas Scott’s research interest focuses on the application of mass spectrometry (MS) to understand bacterial systems. Nick attained his Bachelor of Science at the University of Sydney, and in 2006 was awarded first class Honours and the University Medal. During his graduate studies also at the University of Sydney (2007 to 2011), Nick focused on the utilisation of multiple MS approaches to characterise and understand Campylobacter jejuni protein glycosylation system. Nick joined the Hartland group in 2016 and with the support of a National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) New Investigator grant aims to expand his work on bacterial glycosylation and its role in pathogenesis.

  • Key Achievements
    • In 2012, Nick was the recipient of a CJ Martin Fellowship (NHMRC Australia) and moved to the University of Alberta (2011-2012) and then University of British Columbia (2012-2015) to continue his training in MS analysis incorporating the use of quantitative MS approaches to understand properties of proteins not self evident from sequence alone. In 2013, Nick received a Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research Postdoctoral Fellowship to extend his training in Canada, enabling him to expand his work to look at not only glycosylation, but also global protein interaction analyses. During his postdoctoral training, Nick has also been the recipient of multiple awards and grants, and has published multiple research articles.

      The overall goal of Elizabeth’s group’s research is to understand the molecular basis of bacterial infection. Using respiratory and gastrointestinal pathogens, Elizabeth’s group has identified and characterised the function of translocated bacterial effector proteins and the role of their host targets in immunity and disease.
