Dr Tom Nebl has an extensive background in mass spectrometry and proteomics and worked in this field for more than 20 years. Prior to joining CSIRO in 2016, his research has primarily focused on the discovery of novel therapeutic vaccine or drug candidates against human diseases such as malaria, toxoplasmosis, influenza, or myeloid proliferative diseases.

He currently works in the CSIRO Biology R&D Group based in Clayton, Victoria. Together with colleagues of the Biomedical Manufacturing and Materials Characterization & Modelling Programs, his work is aimed at accelerating the development of novel therapies and helping Australia's biomedical research and industry sectors to translate discoveries into new medicines.

Dr Nebl has established a strong track record in applying quantitative proteomics and structural mass spectrometry techniques to study the structure, function and biomolecular interactions of recombinant proteins or protein complexes, and his research has been widely published in high impact journals.
