Professor Anthony White, PhD

Senior Group Leader, Cellular and Molecular Neurodegeneration, Brain and Mental Health, QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute.

Anthony White obtained a PhD in neuroscience from Murdoch University in 1996, then undertook a post-doctoral position at University of Melbourne investigating Alzheimer’s and prion diseases. He worked at Imperial College of Medicine, UK, in 2001 studying immunotherapeutic approaches to prion diseases. He obtained an NHMRC RD Wright Fellowship (2004-2008) and established a research group at the Department of Pathology, University of Melbourne investigating the role of biometals in neurodegeneration, and development of metal-based drugs for treatment of these disorders. He received an ARC Future Fellowship in 2011, was recruited to QIMR Berghofer in 2016, and was awarded an NHMRC Senior Research Fellowship in 2017. His research has contributed to the development of first-in-class metal-drugs as a potential new therapeutic approach to treat motor neuron disease. He is currently developing new human patient-based models of neurodegeneration including microglia, 3D cultures, and organoids to identify new treatment approaches for human brain health.
