Noah Piper

Noah has a B Pharm Science (hons.) from Monash University and a keen interest in neuropharmacology. He is excited to be working on melanocortin 4 receptor signalling and dynamics within our lab. Outside of the lab, Noah spends more time than he cares to admit amassing and cataloguing a music collection and staunchly believes that life is far too short to spend it drinking bad coffee.

Peter McDonald

Peter has a B Science (hons.) in chemistry from the University of Melbourne and is working to develop novel solvatochromatic fluorophores for applications in measuring protein dynamics. His project is a collaboration between the Ritchie Lab (Chemistry, Monash University) and the the RTC lab. From relaxing on a beach, to seeking out a waterfall amongst the mountain ashes, you will likely find Peter exploring the great outdoors when not in the lab

Mitchell Ringuet

Mitchell has a Biomedical science (Msc.) in Neuroscience from the University of Melbourne and is working on our project on the interaction between Ghrelin and Dopamine D2 receptors using ex-vivo electrophysiology & RNA scope. His project is a collaboration between the lab of Digestive Physiology & Nutrition lab at the Florey Institute for Neurosciences and the the RTC lab. Mitchell like to hit the links while avoiding getting centuries.
