Dr Peta Harvey was appointed to the Institute of Molecular Bioscience NMR Facility in January 2009. Dr Harvey is an instrumental specialist with more than 25 years of experience in the use of NMR techniques as well as the operation, systems management, training and supervision of spectrometer usage. Having applied multinuclear NMR methods during her PhD studies in mechanistic organic chemistry, she has diversified her interests from liver dysfunction and altered drug metabolism in the cirrhotic and aged liver (Canberra Clinical School of University of Sydney) to structural studies of muscle related proteins (Australian National University). More recently whilst at IMB, her particular expertise has extended to the structural and functional characterization of peptides and small proteins with complex cross-linked topologies and the use of such bioactive peptides in drug design.
