Gary Hime's Profile Picture
Prof

Gary Hime

 

I received my Ph.D. in 1994 from the University of Adelaide where I studied with Prof. R. Saint the developmental control of cytokinesis in the Drosophila embryo. I entered the field of reproductive biology as a C.J.

Martin Fellow at Stanford University where I studied aspects of Drosophila spermatogenesis in the laboratory of Dr. Margaret Fuller, Department of Developmental Biology. I continued an interest in cell division and characterized a gene required for meiotic cytokinesis. As part of this work I developed a novel assay for detection of actin filaments in the Drosophila testis and assisted the laboratory of Dr. Chris Bazinet, St. John’s University, New York to adapt this assay for the study of sperm individualisation.

Upon my return to Australia I set up a Drosophila facility with Prof. David Bowtell at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Institute. I utilised the genetic tools available in Drosophila to dissect oncogene function. My major research interest in the Dept. of Anatomy and Cell Biology at the University of Melbourne is now the molecular regulation of stem cell biology. I have continued to use Drosophila as a genetic model for the study of human disease genes as well as spermatogenesis studies as a CI in the ARC Centre of Excellence in Biotechnology and Development.
