Biographical details

Roger Bourne completed his PhD in 31P magnetic resonance spectroscopy of yeasts at the Department of Microbiology, University of Queensland. In 1990-93 he was a postdoctoral fellow at the private laboratory of Nobel Laureate Peter Mitchell in Cornwall, UK, where he studied the sodium-motive NADH-ubiquinone oxidoreductase of Vibrio alginolyticus. He successfully developed a method for purification of this membrane protein complex that enabled the first N-terminal sequencing of the subunits.

In 1993-94 he was a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Biochemistry, University of Sydney, developing MR spectroscopy methods for microorganisms and erythrocytes as part of the Cooperative Research Centre for Membrane Biosensors. From 1995-1999 Roger was a Senior Scientist for FungiGulp Research Group P/L - a private company formed to commercialize waste treatment technology developed at the University of Queensland.

From 1999-2006 he was a Senior Scientist at the Institute for Magnetic Resonance Research (IMRR), University of Sydney, where he was Director of Prostate Research and later Melanoma Research. Research at this institute was focused on cancer detection by magnetic resonance spectroscopy - an exceedingly difficult technical challenge. Dr Bourne was primary author of a successful NHMRC grant for MRI and MRS investigations of prostate cancer. His standing in the field of in-vivo spectroscopy was recognized in an invited speaker presentation to the International Union of Pure and Applied Biophysics biannual conference.
