Gary Housley UNSW researcher

"Translational models for targeting glutamate-mediated excitotoxicity in the brain"

Professor Gary Housley

Chair of Physiology and  Director of the Translational Neuroscience Facility 

School of Medical Sciences, University of New South Wales 

Our next CBR Seminar speaker, Professor Gary Housley, leads a team with a research focus on molecular, cellular and systems physiology in the nervous system, particularly around neuroprotection in the CNS and auditory system.  He has contributed prominently to understanding how hearing adapts to noise and ageing.

Within the brain, Professor Housley's research group is investigating neural plasticity associated with driven input (e.g. via cochlear implant) and mechanisms for protection and repair of the nervous system; focusing of the role of calcium signalling in glutamate excitotoxicity, associated with ischaemic brain injury, stroke, epilepsy, trauma and noise-induced hearing loss.
