Abstract:

Following the completion of her doctorate in physiology from the University of Virginia in 1990, Dr. Lew moved to Melbourne, Australia where she began her work in the peptidase field, primarily at the Baker Heart Research Institute with Dr. Ian Smith, a working relationship that has lasted over 10 years. Throughout her postdoctoral years, she has maintained research interests in how peptide hormones control cardiovascular and neuroendocrine function, with a focus on the enzymes that synthesize and degrade these signalling molecules. Her work has resulted in over 35 papers in peer-reviewed journals, as well as a number of book chapters and meeting proceedings. She has recently moved to the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Monash University, and is actively involved in both the Australian Society for Biochemistry and Moelcular Biology and the Australian Peptide Society.
