A/Prof Adam Deane MBBS PhD FCICM FRACP
He completed his MBBS at the University of Melbourne before commencing clinical training in Internal Medicine and then Intensive Care Medicine at St. Vincent’s Hospital, Melbourne. Adam subsequently completed a clinical fellowship at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford (UK), before moving to Adelaide in 2007 to pursue a PhD, which was conferred in 2012. Adam is an Intensive Care Clinician/Scientist who migrated to Adelaide to undertake his PhD programme through the University of Adelaide/Royal Adelaide Hospital. He has a particular interest in glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP), which are secreted by the small intestine and are pivotal in regulating glucose metabolism.
Adam has received numerous grants and awards and has a track record for publishing innovative research (publications). He also frequently presents at national and international meetings (presentations).
He is passionate about informing medical students and intensive care trainees about the joys of clinical research. His research interests are broad-based but predominately clinical and focus on critical illness, diabetes, nutrition and gastrointestinal function.
