I have addressed these criteria below under the headings of:

  •     Major Themes/Areas of Research In Which I Am Involved

  •     Major Research Developments, Achievements and Outcomes:

  •     Service Within The Hospital and University

  •     External Service

  •     Consultative And Related Outside Work


  •     Major Themes/Areas of Research In Which I Am Involved:

 

Clinical Areas of Study

  •         Adults with growth-hormone deficiency.

  •         Adults with Acromegaly.

  •         Normal adults including aged populations.

  •         Veteran athletes.

  •         Adults with Chronic Liver Disease.

  •         Adults post liver transplantation.

  •         Highly trained athletes.

 

I have worked in the Department of Medicine for 15 years researching growth hormone (GH) regulation, physiology and pathophysiology in normal subjects, ageing athletes, adults with growth hormone deficiency, adults with Acromegaly and adults with chronic liver disease; and most recently young male athletes as part of a large European based project funded by the International Olympic Committee and the European Union, (US$3,000,000), with the objective of developing a GH detection methodology for the 2000 Olympics.  I have recently completed the clinical aspect of a significant project as co-principal investigator and coordinator of the $355,584 NHMRC grant: Regulation and effect of the growth hormone, IGF-I, and IGF-Binding protein response to acute exercise, during which I extensively explored thermoregulation and intermediary metabolism, in growth hormone deficient adults;  I have recently been co-investigator on two projects with Acromegalic adults, one which compares medical vs surgical treatment in Acromegaly, and the other which investigates the efficacy of treatment with a novel somatostatin analogue.  I have also recently supervised a neuro-surgical registrar to develop a rat model of Acromegaly and to pursue our ideas of developing a novel treatment of pituitary tumours with a radio-labelled neuropeptide in collaboration with the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organization. On the basis of my publications in the area of GH physiology and GH doping, I was contacted by and am presently collaborating with the Australian Proteomic Analytical Facility in Sydney, in a grant application to the United States Anti Doping Agency for US$760,000. This application has been reviewed and a request for supporting preliminary data was made. I have performed some human experimentation to allow APAF to perform analytical work as preliminary data, and would like to create the opportunity to perform more human research work in Brisbane if funding becomes available.


  •     Major Research Developments, Achievements and Outcomes:

 

In partnership with Ross Cuneo I have dedicated the last 15 years to performing carefully conducted experimenter driven clinical research, and some of the highlights and major achievements have been:

 

  1. Performed some of the world’s first absorption profiles of recombinant human growth hormone in human adults in the 1980’s.

  2. Set up the Metabolic Research Unit at Princess Alexandra Hospital in 1990 for purposes of conducting experimenter driven clinical research into physiology and pathophysiology of GH regulation.  Metabolic testing facilities included respiratory gas analysis, exercise testing, ECG assessment, body composition analysis (including anthropometry, swept frequency bioelectrical impedance and energy expenditure with  D20), 24 hour hormone profile determination, nutritional and metabolic status determination and estimation of resting metabolic rate.  More recently methods have been established for investigation of thermoregulation such as: infra-red photography, detection of sweat gland activation and density with hydrophobic polymer application, measurement of sweat gland activation and secretion rate with ventilated capsule capacitance hygrometry, skin blood flow detection and measurement of core temperature with rectal probes.

  3. Single-handedly set up state of the art exercise physiology laboratory in St Thomas Hospital London with sponsorship by the IOC. Performed all validation work and wrote and implemented human physiology protocols.  Designed conducted and supervised studies from conception to pubication in highly cited, internationally recognised journals.

  4. Contributed intellectually and practically to empirical research to demonstrate efficacy and safety of GH treatment in GH deficient adults world-wide.  Major contribution to the establishment in the world literature of an essential role for Growth Hormone in adult physiology, in the fields of body composition, exercise performance, cardiac function, lipid metabolism, and psychological function.  Contributed significantly to 10 year follow up of GH treatment in GH deficient adults which is considered as a landmark publication along with earlier treatment studies.

  5. Major contributor to industry applications to Therapeutic Goods Administration resulting in authorization of prescription of GH for treatment of GH deficiency in adults and also recent application to government for PBS subsidization.

  6. One of the first in the world to develop the concept that dysregulated GH/insulin-like growth factor-l axis may contribute to the catabolic process of cirrhosis, and to treat patients with supraphysiologic doses of GH with the aim of overcoming that GH resistance.  Probably first in the world to perform a detailed treatment trial, but not first published due to manpower limitations. (This was my 2nd PhD project).

  7. First to characterize the GH/IGF axis and define the endogenous secretory pattern of GH in patients with liver cirrhosis both before and after liver transplantation.

  8. First in the world literature to discover the profound effect of GH on antinatriuresis and contribution to clinically significant ascites and oedema in patients with cirrhosis: leading to potential novel therapeutic strategies in the treatment of resistant ascites.

  9. First in the world to study the effect of strenuous exercise on the diurnal, endogenous GH secretory profiles in adult humans.

  10. Significant efforts to explore the concept that some of the detrimental effects of ageing are mediated by reductions in endogenous GH production, as a result of diminution of physical activity. (This was my masters’ project which got turned into a PhD project!).

  11. Significant contribution to the efforts to develop a program to detect GH and IGF-1 abuse in Olympic athletes: studies funded by the European Union and the International Olympic Committee.  World-first systematic study of the effects of exercise, GH administration and exercise, and GH withdrawal on potential markers of GH abuse in athletes.  Studies led to new understandings of the effect of the GH/IGF axis on normal exercise physiology. (This was my 3rd PhD project!)

  12. Significant contribution to establishing a rat model of Acromegaly, and investigating the development of radio-labeled neuro-peptides in the treatment of Acromegaly. (This was my second post-doc project!).

  13. Significant contribution to working protocols for the investigation of novel therapeutic approaches for industry developed pharmaceutical treatment of Acromegaly.

  14. Design and execution of Innovative and highly technical systematic study of thermoregulation and regulation of GH/IGF system in growth hormone deficiency before and after growth hormone treatment. (This was my first post-doc project!)

  15. Developing a world-wide reputation for innovative and carefully conducted experimenter driven research.

  16. Significant contribution to establishing an Australia-wide registry for Acromegaly.

  17. Developing an international reputation for expertise in GH neuroendocrine physiology and sport.

  18. Establishing collaboration on a global scale in a diverse range of clinically relevant fields.

  19. To have succeeded in obtaining funding from a wide range of granting bodies both internal and external, national and international including the coveted NH$MRC award!


  •     Service Within The Hospital And University:

 

The wide range of roles I have performed in my career as a researcher over the years, both in active research and supervision, have given me a great breadth of practical experience in management of both students and co-workers.

I have contributed widely to Problem Based Learning in the Graduate Medical Course as outlined in the response to selection criteria above.

I have provided mentorship both officially and to the wider student and staff community in both the hospital and university for many years and the practical effectiveness of my skills will be evident from the references provided.
