Neuroscience & Non-Communicable Diseases Seminar Series

Prof. Nigel Turner is head of the Mitochondrial Bioenergetics Laboratory at UNSW Sydney.

He completed a PhD in 2004 in comparative physiology and biochemistry at the University of Wollongong. From 2005-2012 he was in the Diabetes and Obesity Research Program at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research in Sydney, supported by a NHMRC Peter Doherty Fellowship and NMHRC Career Development Award. In 2012 he was awarded an ARC Future Fellowship and relocated his research group to UNSW.

Nigel’s research focuses on investigating factors that regulate mitochondrial function and cellular bioenergetics in healthy and diseased states. In particular his research group is seeking to understand how aberrations in cellular energy metabolism may contribute to the pathogenesis of diseases such as diabetes, obesity and cancer.

He has >130 publications and over 6,000 citations, with articles in top-ranked journals such as Cell, Cell Metabolism, Journal of Clinical Investigation, PNAS and Diabetes.

All welcome. Drinks and snacks from 3:30pm, seminar starts, 4pm.
