2017 NHMRC Menzies Fellow
Scholarship biography (at time of award)
Dr Kevin Man has been awarded the 2016 NHMRC/RG Menzies Fellowship to further his research into circadian rhythm regulation on a cellular level. Dr Man’s research will focus on understanding how genes regulate circadian rhythms, and the impact of disrupted cycles on cardiovascular and metabolic illnesses. His research may help with the development of tailorable therapies for immune related disorders such as asthma or type 2 diabetes.
Dr Man’s research will be conducted at The University of California’s San Francisco campus and the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research. Through the Fellowship he aims to bring new research techniques back to Australia where new technologies are reinventing the types of experiments which can be conceived.
