Dr Morten Thaysen-Andersen
PhD, Glycoprotein Chemistry in 2009 from University of Southern Denmark under the expert guidance of Prof. Peter Hojrup. Facilitated by multiple competitive fellowships, I then completed several postdoctoral fellowship periods in 2009-13 at Glyco@MQ, Macquarie University under the leadership of the Distinguished Prof. Nicki Packer. Enabled by the prestigious Cancer Institute NSW ECR fellowship, I started the Analytical Glycoimmunology Group in 2014.
Postdoctoral Research Fellows
Dr Rebeca Kawahara Sakuma
I received my PhD in Functional and Molecular Biology in 2015 from University of Campinas, Brazil. Enabled by multiple competitive Brazilian fellowships I then completed a postdoctoral position with a focus on molecular cancer research in the Glycoproteomics group
of Prof Giuseppe Palmisano, University of Sao Paulo, Brazil (2015-17) and meanwhile also experienced other high profile (glyco)proteomics laboratories including Prof Michael MacCoss, University of Washington (2014), Prof Martin R. Larsen, University of Southern Denmark (2016)
and, lately, Dr Morten Andersen and Prof Nicki Packer, Macquarie University (2017-18) as a visiting fellow. |
I joined the Analytical Glycoimmunology Group in 2019 as a prestigious Cancer Institute NSW Early Career Development Fellow (2019-22). My current focus is to understand how protein N-glycosylation modulates the tumour microenvironment and impacts the immune- and cancer-related anti- and pro-inflammatory processes in colorectal cancer.

Dr Carolina Moretto Carnielli
I received my PhD in Science in 2018 from University of Campinas, Brazil. During my PhD and now as a post-doctoral fellow, my focus is to identify prognostic biological markers for oral cancer using clinical samples and proteomics based strategies, under the supervision of Prof Adriana F. Paes Leme at the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM), Brazilian Biosciences National Laboratory (LNBio).
Mr Harry Tjondro
I received my BSc in Biomedical Science in 2011 from University of Bradford and my MSc in Biotechnology in 2016 from Tsinghua University.
Ms Sayantani Chatterjee
I received my BSc in Microbiology (Honours) in 2015 from St. Xavier’s College (Autonomous), India and my Master of Research in Chemistry and Bio-molecular Sciences in 2017 from Macquarie University, Australia.
Mr Julian Ugonotti
I received my B Medical Sciences in 2018 and my Master of Research in 2019 from Macquarie University.
Mrs Anastasia Chernykh
I received my BSc in Virology in 2016 from Lomonosov Moscow State University, Russia and my Master of Research in 2020 from Macquarie University.
I joined the Analytical Glycoimmunology Group as a Master of Research candidate in 2019 and commenced my PhD candidature in March 2020. In my current project, I focus on performing deep structural characterisation of Corticosteroid-Binding Globulin (CBG) using advanced mass spectrometry to decode how CBG glycosylation impacts the protein functions in different physiological conditions.
Ms Elizabeta Madzharova
I received my BSc in Molecular Biology in 2011 from Plovdiv University, Bulgaria and my MSc in Chemistry and Molecular Biology in 2016 from Roskilde University, Denmark. Currently, I am a PhD student in the Protease Network Degradomics group at the Technical University of Denmark, where I am working on a project, focused on defining the functional modification of matrix metalloproteinases 9 by glycosylation, essential for the deciphering of the multi-layered regulatory puzzle of this proteinase.
Master of Research Candidate
Mr Kevin Chau
I received my Bachelor of Advanced Science majoring in Chemical and Biomolecular – Cognitive and Brain Sciences in 2019 at Macquarie University.
I am currently in my first year of Master of Research at Macquarie University.
I joined the Analytical Glycoimmunology Group as a research volunteer in 2018. My current project involves studying and characterising mouse microglial receptors that recognise the synapse glycoepitopes mapped over the circadian rhythm, thus decoding the mechanisms underpinning the selective removal of synapses by microglial receptors in the brain during sleep.
