Mark A Baker
I completed my Bachelor of Science Degree with Honours under the supervision of Dr. Alfons Lawen, Monash University at the Department of Biochemistry and Cell Biology. Shortly after, I took up a post-doctoral position with L/Prof. John Aitken and the pharmaceutical giant, Bayer, to work on male contraception. After five very successful years, in 2007, I was awarded the University of Newcastle research Fellowship, which allowed me to start an independent laboratory, whilst still being connected with John. Together we established the University of Newcastle’s Mass Spectrometry Core Facility, which now services not only the University, the greater Hunter area in general. In 2011 I was then awarded and NHMRC Career Development Fellowship for my work in proteomic analysis of human spermatozoa. Although my work now branches outward’s into stroke research, understanding male infertility is still an important priority for my work.
