  • Dr Orly Lacham-Kaplan

    Dr Orly Lacham-Kaplan, Senior Laboratory Manager, Centre of Exercise and Nutrition has specialised in applied research in fertility for her PhD dissertation and became a world specialist in state-of-the-art technologies including stem cell therapies to overcome human infertility for which she was awarded the "BrainLink Women of Achievement Award" in 2007. Orly held a Senior Research Fellow and head of research lab position at Monash University and was the coordinator of, and a lecturer in under and postgraduate courses at Monash University. Orly was also a project officer/consultant for Cancer Council Australia to establish the new surveillance colonoscopy guidelines for the prevention of colorectal cancer and a Lab Manager at the Physical Activity and Behavioural Epidemiology, Baker IDI before she joined the Australian Catholic University. In recent years Orly has developed interest in women health and has been concentrating on establishing holistic wellbeing (body and mind) approach to women health and everyday issues using techniques she has been learning in her studies of Masters of Counselling at Victoria University.Her current research interests include identifying the causes for muscle loss in postmenopausal women from cellular and molecular perspectives utilizing array of technical methods including imaging, molecular biology, immunochemistry and proteomics and establish possible systems to maintain muscle tissue in-vitro and in-vivo.

    Although under the Senior Professional title, Dr Lacham-Kaplan's current position is a combination of organisational management and research activities (academia)

  • Professor John Hawley

    John is currently Head of the Exercise & Nutrition Research Group and Professor of Exercise Metabolism in the Department of Exercise Sciences. He has published over 200 scientific manuscripts (PUBMED), written over 80 articles for technical journals and has authored numerous book chapters for exercise biochemistry and sports medicine texts. He currently sits on the Editorial Boards of many international journals including the American Journal of Physiology (Endocrinology and Metabolism); The Journal of Applied Physiology (U.S.A.); The Journal of Sports Sciences (U.K); Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise (U.S.A.); Sports Medicine (New Zealand; and The International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism (U.S.A.). His laboratories research interests include the interaction of exercise and diet on skeletal muscle metabolism; the molecular bases of exercise training adaptation; the cellular bases underlying exercise-induced improvements in insulin action; and exercise-nutrient interventions for weight loss. He is a consultant for several professional sports teams in Europe and Australia and a regular invited speaker at numerous international conferences every year.

  • Dr Nolan Hoffman

    Dr Nolan Hoffman completed his BSc in Biology at Butler University in his hometown of Indianapolis, Indiana in the USA. Nolan earned his PhD in Cellular and Integrative Physiology in 2012 from Indiana University School of Medicine, where he also received postgraduate training in the business of life sciences. He relocated to Australia in 2012 to undertake his postdoctoral research at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research and the University of Sydney Charles Perkins Centre. He joined Australian Catholic University in 2016 as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Exercise and Nutrition Research Program at the Mary MacKillop Institute for Health Research where he currently leads the Integrative Physiology Group.

    Nolan's research is focused on the regulation of whole body and skeletal muscle metabolism by diet and exercise with a focus on cellular signalling networks and energy sensing mechanisms. His translational research involves a range of approaches including molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry, proteomics, systems biology and physiology.

  • Nat Sch Physiotherapy

  • Dr David Andrew Good

    I have worked in the field of biomedical research since commencing post-graduate studies in 1997. Since then I have been involved in a number of different internationally recognised research projects ranging from obesity to cancer. In 2008 helped I established the Division of Molecular and Gene Therapies within the Griffith Institute for Health and Medical Research. I was subsequently appointed the Head of the Clinical Research Unit. Some of the projects I am currently involved in include, genetics of type 2 diabetes, research into solid tumours (lung cancer, prostate, breast and colorectal cancer) and Chinese traditional medicines. In early 2009, I help establish a collaborative link with the Guangdong Pharmaceutical University in Guangdong Province China and more recently I have been responsible for establishing links with an industry partners.

    Over the course of my career I have had the opportunity to teach medical students at the University of Queensland. Since 2008 I was the course convenor (lecturer-in-charge) for anatomy and physiology at Griffith University. In this role I received many student nominations for Teaching Excellence Awards. In 2010, I also received a Commendation for outstanding performance in enhancing the quality of student learning.
