Dr Darren Creek is a Senior Lecturer and head of the metabolomics laboratory at the Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences. He completed his PhD at Monash University in 2007, which led to the discovery of a new antimalarial, OZ439, and conducted post-doctoral training on clinical pharmacokinetics with UCSF-Makerere research collaboration in Uganda. Dr Creek received a CJ Martin Fellowship (NHMRC) to study parasite metabolomics at the University of Glasgow and the University of Melbourne. He developed several novel analytical methods and software for the metabolomics field, and discovered novel pathways and drug mechanisms in protozoan parasites. His group continues to develop novel metabolomics techniques and apply systems approaches to understand the role of metabolism in drug action and resistance mechanisms for cancer and infectious diseases. He currently holds an RD Wright Career Development Fellowship (NHMRC) and is a Director of the international Metabolomics Society.
