Dr Mark Temple is a lecturer in Molecular Biology in the School of Biomedical and Health Sciences at the University of Western Sydney (UWS). During his PhD Mark studied chromatin structure (nucleosome positioning and transcription factor binding) during gene expression and cell cycle progression. In addition he studied the interaction of anti-cancer drugs (including cisplatin and some novel analogues) with DNA in human cells. As a post-doctoral research fellow with Profressor Ian Dawes in the School of Biotechnology and Biomolecular Sciences at University of New South Wales (UNSW), Mark studied ageing and oxidative stress using bakers yeast as a model organism. During the past few years he has become increasingly interested in cell biology, functional genomics and the development of bioinformatics tools for genome-wide dataset analysis.
