Research Biography

Professor Vincent Bulone is a Matthew Flinders Professor and Director of the Centre for Marine Bioproducts Development.

Until his rectuiment in August 2022 at Flinders University, Vincent was the Director of Adelaide Glycomics, an analytical centre for complex carbohydrates which he established in collaboration with Agilent Technologies Australia Pty Ltd. Additionally, Vincent was the Director of the Research Consortium Program for Agricultural Product Development supported by the South Australian Department for Industry, Innovation and Science, focusing on the conversion of agricultural waste into high-value products. Vincent was also the Research Director of the Fight Food Waste Cooperative Research Centre which is instrumental in addressing Australia's $20 billion food waste situation.

Following his transition to Flinders University in August 2022, Vincent has establised a new multiomic analytical platform, including glycomics, again in partnership with Agilent Technologies Australia Pty Ltd.

Vincent’s research is focused in various areas of Glycoscience, comprising fundamental research on algae, plants and microorganisms, as well as biotechnological developments towards carbohydrate-based products relevant to the following areas: Marine Biotechnology, Biorefinery, Agriculture and Waste Management, Food Sustainability, Bioenergy, Biomaterials, and Disease Control.

Vincent was a member of the Australian Research Council’s College of Experts and former Director of the ARC Centre of Excellence in Plant Cell Walls. Prior to his recruitment in Adelaide, Vincent was the Director of the Centre for Biomimetic Fibre Engineering and the Advanced Carbohydrate Materials Consortium in Stockholm, Sweden. Vincent is the founder of the spin-out company CarbOzide Pty Ltd in Adelaide. The company exploits his recent invention on UV protective materials based on carbohydrates and natural molecular sunscreens from algae.

Research Interests

  • Biosynthesis of plant, algal, fungal and oomycete cell wall polysaccharides and secondary metabolites
  • Biochemical and biophysical approaches for the study of membrane-bound complexes with glycosyltransferase activity and characterisation of the corresponding polysaccharides, with particular emphasis on cellulose, (1→3)-β-D-glucan and chitin biosynthesis 
  • Metabolic engineering of biosynthetic pathways of plant, algal and microbial polysaccharides and secondary metabolites
  • Glycomics; Quantitative proteomics; Metabolomics; Transcriptomics; Genomics
  • Engineering and characterization of carbohydrate-based composites 
  • Applied aspects of carbohydrate and secondary metabolite biosynthetic pathways, including aspects relevant to the following sectors: food sustainability, biotechnology, biorefinery and natural products, marine biotechnology, waste management, bioenergy, biomaterials,  anti-fungal and anti-oomycete inhibitors for disease control in humans, animals and plants
