Prof Ashley Bush MB BS, DPM, FRANZCP, PhD, FTSE, FAHMS, FAPA

Head, Oxidation Biology Unit — Neurodegeneration

Ashley Bush (MBBS, DPM, FRANZCP, PhD, FTSE, FAHMS, FAPA) is Professor of Neuroscience at the University of Melbourne; Director of the Oxidation Biology Unit at the Florey Institute of Neuroscience & Mental Health; Co-Director of Biomarker Development for the Australian Imaging, Biomarkers and Lifestyle Study of Aging; and Chief Scientific Officer for the Cooperative Research Centre for Mental Health. As a neuroscientist and ageing researcher, Prof Bush has made valuable contributions over the past 25 years to our understanding of the importance of metal biology and oxidative stress in the function and dysfunction of the brain, especially as it is ages and becomes predisposed to degeneration. He has accrued 360+ publications and 26 patents, has presented over 280 invited lectures worldwide (including 24 Plenary), is currently the most highly cited neuroscientist in Australia and is rated in the top 1% of neuroscience researchers worldwide for high impact citations. The steady increase in the proportion of world publications relating to metals in the brain can be largely attributed to the impact of Prof Bush’s work and his pioneering Metals Theory of Age-related Neurodegeneration. Over the course of his career, he has received several awards and honours for his research, most recently the NHMRC Australia Fellowship (2011); Victoria Prize for Science and Innovation (2014); Woodward Medal in Science and Technology (2014); NHMRC Senior Principal Research Fellowship (2016), and citation in The World's Most Influential Scientific Minds (Thomson Reuters, 2014, 2015).
