Zane B Andrews
Associate Professor Zane Andrews received his PhD in New Zealand at the University of Otago in 2003 and has 15 years experience in the field of neuroendocrinology and neuroscience. From there, he went on to do postdoctoral training at Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut, USA (2004-2008). Dr Andrews came to Monash University late in 2008 as a Monash Fellow and has started to establish his own research program. In 2011 he became an Australian Research Council Future Fellow and in 2015 he was awarded a NHMRC Career Development Award Level 2. His works focuses on the neuroendocrine control of energy homeostasis and is internationally recognised for his research on the metabolic hormone ghrelin and its central role in energy and glucose homeostasis, as well as hypothalamic circuits controlling energy homeostasis. He uses a combination of transgenic mouse and viral models, animal behaviour, neuroanatomy and in vivo physiology to probe questions about how the brain senses and integrates nutritional and hormonal cues and how these signals are transformed in behavioural and physiological adaptations that maintain energy and glucose homeostasis.
