Dr Tristan Croll
This person does not currently hold a position at QUT.
My primary research focus is on the fundamental biology of wound healing. With my background in chemical engineering, my natural tendency is to attack this from a structural, systems and chemical biology perspective. Current research projects include:
- The role of integrin-associated transglutaminases in the signalling of the insulin-like growth factor I receptor and related receptors;
- The enzymology of the transglutaminases themselves, and their various mysterious roles both inside and outside the cell;
- Re-refinement and simulation of the insulin receptor to work towards determination of its activated conformation;
- The development of improved tools for interactive inspection and re-refinement of low-resolution protein crystal structures.
