Professor Gary Wittert is a graduate of Johannesburg’s University of Witwatersrand and underwent his postgraduate training at Christchurch Hospital and Otago University, in New Zealand, at the Harvard Medical, Boston and Oregon Health Sciences University.

He is the Mortlock Professor of Medicine, and Head of the Discipline of Medicine at the University of Adelaide, Senior Consultant Endocrinologist at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, and Director of the Freemasons Foundation Centre for Men's Health. He is a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Health and Medical Sciences and Senior Principal Research Fellow at the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute. He is a past President of the Australasian Society for the Study of Obesity, and is currently vice president of the Asia Oceania Association of the Study of Obesity.

His research interests relate to peripheral mechanisms of appetite regulation, regulation of intermediary metabolism, and management and prevention of obesity and related complications, and the physiology and use of testosterone.

Professor Wittert’s research focuses on:
(1) The physiology of food intake, energy expenditure, and the regulation of body composition, in particular, the effects of varying macronutrient content; leptin physiology; gastrointestinal hormones, circadian events and gastric vagal afferent signalling; and the peripheral effects of endocannabinoids and fatty acids.
(2) Weight loss interventions for childhood and complicated obesity including clinical trials with end points relating to pregnancy outcomes, diabetes, erectile dysfunction, lower urinary tract symptoms, cardiac dysfunction and atrial fibrillation;
(3) Testosterone physiology and pathophysiology, in particular the relationship between androgens, body composition and metabolism;
(4) Novel observations relating to the prevalence of, and disease associations with, obstructive sleep apnoea;
(5) Initiated and leads a cohort study of 2500 community dwelling men aged 35-80 years now with 3 waves of follow-up.

He initiated and leads a cohort study of ~2500 men aged 35-80 years (Florey Adelaide Male Ageing Study) with 2 waves of follow-up and has been harmonised with a comparable cohort to form one of Australia’s largest and most intensively studied male cohorts (MAILES). Other large scale multidisciplinary research teams built and led include the Healthy Ageing Research Cluster, University of Adelaide. He co-founded the Freemasons Foundation Centre for Men's Health and the NHMRC Centre of Research Excellence in Nutritional Physiology. He currently chairs a large scale NHMRC funded multicentre diabetes prevention study in men (T4DM). He has been Principle Investigator of phase I and II studies of drugs for the obesity, type 2 diabetes mellitus, androgen replacement and erectile function.

Professor Wittert has authored over three hundred and fifty peer-reviewed papers and books/book chapters. He is Independent Chair of the Weight Management Council of Australia and founding Editor in Chief of the “Journal of Obesity Research and Clinical Practice”.
