Dr Ross McKinnon
University of South Australia
Ross is studying the genetic factors that determine susceptibility to drug and chemical toxicity, research that has important implications for future drug development. He has also developed transgenic models as new tools for understanding the molecular basis of toxicology and chemical carcinogenesis. Ross’s work has brought him a high national and international profile in toxicology research, and in addition, his commitment to excellence in teaching has given him a reputation as a fine teacher.
Ross remains at the University of SA as a Professor. In 2007 he became a member of the AIPS board and continues to assist the Tall Poppy Campaign in South Australia.
