Associate Professor Tim Cole is an academic and biomedical research scientist at the Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, Monash University in Melbourne. Tim is the current President of the Endocrine Society of Australia and a long-standing member of the Council of the Society. He leads a Research Group in the Stem Cells and Development theme of the Biomedicine Discovery Institute at Monash University. His research program investigates endocrine systems and cell signalling pathways important for mammalian development and function. He is also a member of the The Endocrine Society (USA), the British Endocrine Society and currently holds positions on the Editorial Board (Endocrinology) of Scientific Reports (Nature Publishing) and the Journal of Endocrinology/Journal of Molecular Endocrinology (Bioscientifica, UK). Associate Professor Cole’s main research interests and experience are on the developmental roles of the adrenal steroid hormones that act through intracellular nuclear receptors, particularly related to respiratory development, renal function and metabolic disease. Other research interests include synthetic steroid drugs to treat a range of inflammatory, respiratory and metabolic diseases. His laboratory has published extensively on the role of these steroid signalling pathways in many physiological systems in the body.
