Sacha completed his PhD at Monash University in 2011 working on Mycobacterium ulcerans, which causes debilitating skin infections. He followed this with a two-year Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship at the Leibniz Institute for Natural Product Research and Infection Biology in Germany, where he identified new bacterial secondary metabolites from anaerobes. Part of this work resulted in the discovery of clostrubin, the first aromatic polyketide identified from an anaerobe, and this work was awarded the MEDAC prize in 2014 and 2015. Since then, he has focused his attention on identifying new antibacterials from human pathogenic bacteria.
