Dr. Paul Jaschke is a Lecturer in Synthetic Biology in the Chemistry and Biomolecular Sciences Department at Macquarie University where his research group is pioneering the science and engineering of synthetic viruses. His main research at the moment focuses on how to engineer bacteriophage genomes with added function while maintaining the robustness of natural systems. Dr. Jaschke is also passionate about teaching and is the unit convenor for CBMS794 (Synthetic Biology) and CBMS337 (Biochemistry and Cell Biology) at Macquarie University.

A Magnetic Collaboration between CBMS and the Learning Innovation Hub

It all started with an idea for unique laboratory experiment in Biochemistry and Cell Biology (CBMS337 and CBMS837) unit in the CBMS department. Students would fish one protein from a complex protein soup from a cancer cell to learn about the principles of how antibodies work. Even better than this, the lab would use for the first time cutting-edge magnetic beads to complete the lab on time: the lab would normally take over four hours but it was allocated only three hours.
