Rohan Teasdale received a Ph.D. degree in medicine in 1995 from Monash University. His thesis was focused on defining the subcellular localization signals responsible for targeting proteins to the Golgi apparatus. During this time, Teasdale developed experimental expertise in cell biology and membrane trafficking. While serving as a Postdoctoral Scientist at RW Johnson PRI, a Johnson and Johnson Company in San Diego, he gained expertise in bioinformatics during working in the Target Discovery Team. Upon returning to Australia, he used this combined expertise to discover numerous novel endosomal proteins including the retromer complex and the sorting nexin family of proteins. This research program continued when Teasdale was recruited to the IMB in 2000 to establish his own research group. His multidisciplinary research group is focused on understanding how individual proteins are compartmentalized within the endolysosomal system mammalian cell and on defining the protein machinery responsible for their organization and trafficking.
