“When Steroid Receptors Meet Molecular Chaperones” Other events...
Tom Ratajczak received his PhD in Organic Chemistry from the University of Western Australia in 1972 and joined Roland Hähnel as Saw Medical Research Fellow in the Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology, where he established an affinity chromatography-based method to isolate the intact estrogen receptor-Hsp90 complex. In 1989-90 he pursued further postdoctoral studies with Gordon Ringold, Institute of Cancer & Developmental Biology, Syntex Research, Palo Alto, California and after returning to Perth in 1991 joined the Department of Endocrinology & Diabetes, Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital where he is now Senior Medical Scientist in Charge. He holds a Lab Head position in the Centre for Medical Research, Western Australian Institute for Medical Research, UWA. His group is credited with the discovery of cyclophilin 40, a cyclosporin A-binding cochaperone associated with the estrogen receptor. In addition to his major research focus on the role of Hsp90 molecular chaperone machinery in steroid receptor function, he has special interests in the role of sequestosome 1/p62 in Paget’s disease of bone and in calcium-sensing receptor genetics in parathyroid dysfunction.
