Harvey Millar, Director, ARC Centre of Excellence in Plant Energy Biology. His research focuses on mitochondrial function in plants and the role of metabolism is the energy efficiency of plants. His work has provided key new insights into antioxidant defence pathways in mitochondrial, diurnal rhythms in mitochondrial metabolism, tissue-specific mitochondrial functions, plant-specific features of the electron transport chain, regulatory networks governing respiratory activity in plants, and the mechanisms of mitochondria damage during oxidative stress. His group is also working on advances in plant proteome analysis to allow measurements of protein turnover rates and targeted quantitation of enzymes in metabolic pathways in both model plants and crops. In international collaborations using novel dataset and software developments, he has been involved in building plant proteome databases, protein location prediction and protein-protein interaction prediction in plants.
