Welcome to a new CNBP researcher

27 July 2017:

CNBP welcomes its newest researcher to the team, Shi Xian (Edward) Moh who is based at Macquarie University.

Edward has previously been a part of Prof Nicki Packer’s glycomics group, successfully undertaking both his Honours and PhD study under her supervision. His study included detailed analysis of glycans, glycopeptides and glycoproteins and more specifically, research into using the glycosylation on the antibody immunoglobulin M (IgM) for specific labelling.

At CNBP, Edward will be initially examining functionalisation of the IgM antibody and other proteins, via chemo-enzymatic engineering of the glycans, for reproducible, multi-purpose labelling suitable for targeting specific cellular molecular receptors.

Edward’s experience includes detailed characterisation of proteins and their glycosylation by mass spectrometry; molecular biology of protein expression and purification, synthetic biology techniques, separation technologies; and coaching and advising undergraduate students in the world’s largest international synthetic biology competition, iGEM.

Welcome to the CNBP team Edward!
