Emeritus Professor John Whitelock

Grad Sch: Biomedical Eng

Research Interests:
Tissue repair and regeneration involves interactions between the extracellular environment that binds growth signals and guides cell and tissue behavior. The activity of these signals is controlled by glycosylated molecules known as proteoglycans and this is my central area of research interest.

Broad Research Areas:
Biochemistry, Biomedical Engineering, Cell Biology and Gene Regulation, Cardiology and Vascular Disease, Proteomics

Society Memberships & Professional Activities:
International Society for Matrix Biology, American Society for Matrix Biology, Australian and New Zealand Society for Matrix Biology - President, Australian Society for Medical Research

Specific Research Keywords:
Glycomics, Mass Spectrometry, Proteoglycans, Tissue Regeneration, mast cell biology
