Chi Nam Ignatius Pang
Dr Ignatius Pang completed his PhD in 2010 on the topic "The Dynamics of Protein Interaction Networks." In his thesis, he explored different mechanisms that govern the dynamics of protein-protein interactions - such as how changes in domain-domain interactions, post-translational modifications, and protein abundance can dynamically switch on/off protein-protein interactions. He also performed a large-scale screen of arginine and lysine methylation in the yeast proteome, and found that there are more methylated proteins than previously thought. Working as a Postdoc with Prof. Marc Wilkins since 2011, Dr. Pang has specialized in systems biology and network dynamics. His current work includes collaboration with A/Prof. Dee Carter (USyd) to identify gene co-expression networks involved in synergistic antifungal treatment (an NHMRC funded project) and analysis of the signalling pathways involved in mesenchymal stem cells differentiation.
