Dr Alastair Stewart

Dr Stewart read the Natural Sciences Tripos at the University of Cambridge (Girton College), obtaining his BA in 2007 and MA in 2009. Following this, he moved to Sydney to work as a research assistant at the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute to gain more extensive research experience. He subsequently embarked on a PhD at the University of New South Wales, graduating in 2012. Since then he has built his own research team to tackle important biological questions and his research has provided novel insights into the function of molecules important to disease.

Dr Stewart’s research is dedicated to explaining the fundamental mechanisms that govern essential biological processes involved in disease, such as energy conversion and protein folding. His team uses a combination of experimental methods, such as X-ray crystallography, electron microscopy and intact mass spectrometry. Only by seeing the machinery of life at the atomic scale can we begin to understand life and disease.

Dr Stewart has received many prestigious awards for his research and science communication.
