Prof John Furness Ph.D FAA

Senior Principal Research Fellow — Systems Neurophysiology

Professor Furness has held research and teaching positions at the University of Melbourne and Flinders University. He spent periods of time in research in England, Japan, France and the United States. His research has concentrated on the autonomic nervous system, particularly the control of digestive function, and on drug development. He is best known for his work in unravelling the circuitry of the enteric nervous system and for the chemical coding hypothesis. His current work concentrates on digestive physiology and nutrition, and on animal models of digestive diseases, including inflammatory bowel disease. He has awards for science and service to science, including Fellowship of the Australian Academy, the Australian Centenary Medal and the Davenport Award of the American Physiological Society. He currently holds dual positions at the Florey and the University of Melbourne.
