Stuart Mazzone

 

Professor Stuart Mazzone completed PhD training at the University of Tasmania, in Australia in 2000 before postdoctoral training at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions in the USA. He then held several previous academic appointments in Australia, first at the Howard Florey Institute for Neuroscience in Melbourne and then the School of Biomedical Sciences at the University of Queensland, working as an independently funded Research Fellow.

Dr Mazzone is now currently a Professor in Neuroscience in the Department of Anatomy and Neuroscience at the University of Melbourne, where he also serves as Deputy Head (Research) and Head of the Laboratory of Respiratory Sensory Neuroscience. His research program relies on a multidisciplinary approach employing physiological, pharmacological, anatomical and molecular techniques, using cells, tissues, and laboratory animal models combined with preclinical and clinical studies in humans and focuses on the neural pathways regulating airway defensive reflexes and respiratory sensations. Having published over 110 peer review papers, he is considered a leading authority on the respiratory autonomic and sensory neurobiology, especially the neurobiology of cough and the brain networks governing pulmonary sensory processing. He is recognised for seminal work in animals describing novel vagal sensory neural circuits arising from the airways and lungs and for translational studies in humans that have provided unprecedented insight into how the human brain processes vagal sensory inputs in health and disease.
