DR ANTON CALABRESE
University Academic Fellow and Group Leader
Anton completed a PhD in 2013 at the University of Adelaide under the supervision of Prof John Bowie and Dr Tara Pukala. His PhD work focused on the development of novel negative ion-mass spectrometry amenable crosslinking reagents and the study of amphibian antimicrobial peptides. In 2013 Anton relocated to the University of Leeds as a postdoctoral researcher working with Prof Alison Ashcroft, Prof Sheena Radford FRS and Prof Peter Henderson. During his postdoctoral studies, Anton developed new methods in native mass spectrometry, chemical crosslinking and fast photochemical oxidation of proteins and used these methods to study systems spanning membrane proteins, chaperones and amyloid. In January 2020 he began a new role at the University of Leeds as a University Academic Fellow and Group Leader in Biological Mass Spectrometry.
