I am a molecular pharmacologist who works at the University of Adelaide, Australia. I have a broad interest in the understanding of how surface receptors can modulate neuronal function and survival, as well as interests in natural product pharmacology and toxicology as well as drug design. I am also interested in evolutionary biology, science communication (committee member of SA Science Communicators). I write for the Conversation on the toxicological impacts of everyday items. I am also an avid amateur astronomer. My astronomy blog is astroblog.
I did postdoctoral work in the Institute of Pharmacology at the Free University of Berlin in 1991-1994, returning to Australia in 1994. I have collaborated with Professor John Carver, Dr. Scot Smid and Professor Colin Barrow on using natural products to attack the neurodegeneration process in Alzheimer’s Disease. I am currently the convenor of the Toxicology Special Interest Group of the Australasian Society for Pharmacology and Toxicology. I am also collaborating with Professor Roger Byard on the forensic implications of herbal medicines. I have held NH&MRC funding and ARC funding.

The main thrust of my research has been the role of signal transduction in neuronal function. In recent years this has extended into the area of neuroprotection and neurotoxicity. This has been followed on three fronts; the role of amyloid peptides in neurotoxicity, and how this may be combated with natural products. This work is undertaken with Professor John Carver and Dr. Scott Smid. We have found potent products that can prevent and disrupt amyloid formation. This has profound implications not only for the therapy of Alzhemiers disease, but for a wide range disease that involve of protein misfolding, from systemic amyloidosis to HIV infection.
As well, I have formed collaboration with Professor Colin Barrow (with whom I have collaborated on imidazloine receptor research) in an ARC linkage grant (LP100100069) to look at the role of defensins in ameliorating amyloid damage. My work in this area has been recognised by my being elected to the co-convernor role of the Healthy Ageing Research Cluster, which promoted Ageing research in South Australia (and through which I represented University of Adelaide Researchers at the State government Aging Research round table), until 2010.
As a further logical development of the natural product theme my work has branched out into neurotoxicology with work with Professor Roger Byard and Professor Michael Bunce (Curtin University WA) looking at the toxicity of herbal medicines. (NHMRC Grant APP1061329) As result of this work we have a collaboration with the TGA and have been able to advise them of potentially dangerous herbal medicines.
More recently I have developed collaboration on cynaobacterial toxins with Dr. Andrew Humpage at the Australian Water Quality Centre, SA water
My work in this area was been recognised by my being elected to the co-convernor role of the Healthy Ageing Research Cluster, which promotes Ageing research in South Australia (and through which I represented University of Adelaide Researchers at the State government Aging Reserach round table). More recently I become convenor, then chair, of the Toxoicology Special Interest Group in the Australasian Society of Clinical and Experimental Pharmacologists andToxicologists (ASCEPT), the peak professional body for pharmacologists in Australia. I was recently elected to the ASCEPT Board.
As well, I have had a very productive collaboration with Professor John Bowie investigating defensive neuroptides from frog secretions. These have the potential to be developed into new drugs for pain relief or brain injury.
This focus on neuroprotection developed from my work on imidazoline receptors with Professor John Piletz. There has been some remarkable developments in the field of imidazoline receptor research, some of which I have been privileged to be a part of. My collaborator, Dr. John Piletz, reported the first clone of the I1-receptor and highly selective I1-ligands were shown to produce hypotension in a2-adrenoceptor knock out mice, significantly strengthening a role for these receptors in blood pressure control. Since then, using cells transfected with the cloned imidazoline receptor, we have been able to show that these receptors have significant effects on neuronal growth, survival and neurite formation, as well as being involved in re-organising the neuronal cytoskeleton. For the first time, it appears we have an insight into how these receptors affect neuromodulation and neuroprotection. Furthermore, a wider role in disease states is apparent from results suggesting that imidazoline receptors are involved in mood disorders and modulation of pain perception.
These results built on important results we found in intact animals. In collaboration with Dr Emilio Badoer of the Department of Medical Laboratory Science, and Colin Barrow of the University of Melbourne, I had demonstrated that an endogenous imidazoline ligand, harmane, produces hypotension when micro-injected into the brainstem. This was the first time a candidate endogenous ligand had been shown to modulate blood pressure and represents a significant advance in our knowledge. We have also produced a series of novel compounds that have significant affinity and selectivity for I1-receptors, and are currently testing them functionally. We are currently investigating patenting these compounds. We have also found that I1-receptor ligands, including one of our lead b-carbolines, activate tyrosine kinase, consistent with the structure of the recently described clone. These results are also consistent with the above discoveries of the cloned receptors effects on neuronal growth and survival. Dr. John Piletz, isolator of this clone, and I are currently working to confirm the signal transduction pathway of the clone, and compare it to the native receptors.
Importantly, it appears that some of our imidazoline ligands may also have neuroprotective actions. Dr. Phil Burcham of Adelaide University and myself have performed some exciting preliminary experiments that suggest these compounds may have potential as anti-Alzheimer therapies. Some of the “adduct trapping” compounds that Dr. Burcham has discovered to reverse oxidative stress-induced damage also appear to promote recovery of neurons from damage in models of Alzheimer’s disease. These results have been incorporated into Dr. Burcham’s patent PCT/AU0-2/00900.
The work on Imidazoline receptors follows on from work I began in 1991, when I was awarded an Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellowship and went to the Institute of Pharmacology at the Free University of Berlin. I worked in the laboratory of Professor Gunter Schultz, an international authority on receptor-second messenger interactions. I studied the linkage of a2‑adrenoceptor subtypes to second messenger pathways and the second messenger pathways involved in the functional response to the then newly described a2‑adrenoceptor-like imidazoline receptors. This work was continued with the award of an NH&MRC C.J. Martin Research Fellowship in 1992. .
In October 1994 I returned to Australia to work at Prince Henry's Institute of Medical Research to continue my work on imidazoline receptors and ion channels and to extend my findings from cell lines to animal models. Experiments in the corpus striatum confirmed and extended the findings from cell lines. I have shown that imidazoline receptor ligands inhibit nicotine-stimulated dopamine release with potencies and orders of affinity that reflect their affinity for the nicotinic receptors.
Prior to this I had completed a Ph.D. at the University of Melbourne on an Australian Postgraduate Award with Dr. H. Majewski and Professor M.J. Rand (Department of Pharmacology). In my doctoral work I studied the second messenger mechanisms by which prejunctional a2‑adrenoceptors and angiotensin II receptors modulate noradrenaline release from sympathetic nerves. In 1989 I submitted my Ph.D. thesis entitled: Involvement of second messenger systems in the modulation of noradrenaline release from sympathetic nerves. This study was continued on an NH&MRC grant on which I was a co-investigator on a National Health and Research Council Research Project Grant working on second messengers and the control of noradrenaline release. This work provided basic evidence for the signalling pathways operative in sympathetic nerves and the work on G-proteins was instrumental in opening debate about a2-adrenoceptor coupling processes
My Ph.D. grew out of work I performed for my Masters project. In 1980 I joined Professor R.D. Gordon's hypertension group at the Greenslopes Repatriation Hospital as a research assistant, working on a National Heart Foundation project on the effect of a low salt diet on sympathetic neurotransmission. In 1982 I enrolled in a part-time M.Sc. on the modulation of sympathetic neurotransmission under the joint supervision of Professor R.D. Gordon (Department of Medicine) and Professor B. Shanley (Department of Biochemistry). I submitted my M.Sc. thesis: Modulation of noradrenergic transmission in humans by circulating adrenaline in 1986.
