Biography

Dr Tony Parker is the program leader of the Tissue Repair and Translational Physiology Program (TRTP) at the Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation (IHBI) at the Queensland University of Technology. He is also a Senior Lecturer within the School of Biomedical Sciences at QUT. Dr Parker’s PhD examined the role of extracellular matrix / growth factor complexes and their role in bone cell function. Since then his research has focused on musculoskeletal and skin tissue injury and recovery. Much of his research activities are focused on proteomics, metabolomics and cellular research into the mechanisms and biochemical implications of tissue injury and recovery processes and of health promoting physical activity. In particular, Dr Parker and his students and colleagues have developed the workflows required for the proteomic and metabolomic investigation of wound and tissue fluids at IHBI, QUT. In addition, he helped to establish the proteomics and metabolomics capability at QUTs Central Analytical Research Facility (CARF) at QUT’s Gardens Point campus.

Details
Collaboration between Dr Tony Parker, Professor Martin Sillence (QUT) and Dr Donald Walsh (USA) to investigate equine urinary protein for biomarkers of equine laminitis. Our approch specifically involves utilisation of Surface Enhanced Laser Desorption/Ionisation - Time Of Flight Mass Spectrometry (SELDI-TOF MS) to analyse samples for detection of novel patterns of biomarkers for diagnostic application.
