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 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.

The primary research aim of Dr Scott and his team is to understand the molecular pathways that regulate appetite, mood and behavior in response to hormones and metabolites that signal changes in nutrient availability. His research is specifically focused on the control of the metabolic sensor CaMKK2, which is a major regulator of whole-body energy metabolism and behavior. CaMKK2 dysfunction displays strong links with a range of human diseases including bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, as well as hepatic, prostate and ovarian cancers. A major goal of our research group is to unleash the potential of CaMKK2 as a treatment for psychiatric disorders and cancer, and he has established international collaborations with academic and industrial partners to develop new drugs that target CaMKK2.
Dr Scott graduated with a Bachelor of Science (Hons) from the University of Glasgow and a PhD in Biochemistry from the University of Dundee funded by a prestigious Wellcome Trust Prize scholarship. He moved to Melbourne in 2006 to undertake postdoctoral studies at St Vincents Institute of Medical Research (SVIMR) and established the Neurometabolism group at SVIMR in 2017. Dr Scott is also an Honorary Research Fellow of the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health. His group uses a wide range of techniques including biochemistry, cell biology, protein crystallography, mass spectrometry and genetically modified mouse models to decipher the role of the CaMKK2 pathway in the regulation of metabolism and complex behaviour in health and disease.
