Spencer Williams obtained his BSc in Chemistry from the University of Western Australia in 1994, then completed his PhD at UWA with Prof Bob Stick, in the area of carbohydrate chemistry. He undertook postdoctoral fellowships at the University of British Columbia with Steve Withers and at University of California at Berkeley with Carolyn Bertozzi. In 2002 he moved to the University of Melbourne, where he is Senior Lecturer. His research interests concern the development of substrates and inhibitors of carbohydrate processing enzymes, particularly those that transfer mannose. Additionally, he has interests in the area of sulfuryl group transfer and the development of novel drugs for the treatment of cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
