Who are we?

The McDevitt laboratory is part of the Department of Microbiology and Immunology in the School of Biomedical Sciences at the University of Melbourne.

What do we do?

Our research focuses on 3 key themes: bacterial pathogenesis, membrane proteins and metal ions.

Research projects in the McDevitt group investigate the interaction of pathogenic bacteria with the host environment with a particular focus on characterising membrane transport proteins involved in the movement of essential metal ions.
