Grant Drummond is a NHMRC Senior Research Fellow and co-leader (with A/Prof Chris Sobey) of the Vascular Biology & Immunopharmacology Group in the Department of Pharmacology, Monash University. Over the past decade, Grant Drummond has built up a reputation as a leading vascular pharmacologist and biologist in Australia and internationally, with expertise in mechanisms and consequences of elevated reactive oxygen species (ROS) production and oxidative stress in cardiovascular disease. His work has provided insights into the roles of NADPH oxidase-derived ROS as novel signalling molecules under normal physiological conditions, and as mediators of oxidative damage in vascular disease states such as atherosclerosis, hypertension and stroke. More recently, Grant's work has begun unraveling the roles of the innate and adaptive immune systems in the pathogenesis of renal and vascular disease in hypertension.
Grant Drummond received his PhD from the Department of Pharmacology, University of Melbourne in 1998 and then completed 2 years of postdoctoral training at Emory University (Atlanta, USA) under Prof David Harrison. Grant returned to Australia in 2000 on a Peter Doherty Postdoctoral fellowship and spent 4 years working at the Howard Florey Institute with Prof Greg Dusting. He moved to Monash University in 2004 on a Monash Category I Fellowship and since this time has grown his research team such that it now comprises 7 postdocs, 2 research assistants, 7 postgraduate students and 4 Honours students.
Grant is a Chief Investigator on 5 NHMRC Project Grants and his research has resulted in more than 85 publications.
He is an Associate Editor of Clinical and Experimental Pharmacology and Physiology and is on the editorial boards of 3 additional scientific journals. He is the current Chair of the Heart Foundation of Australia's Postdoctoral Fellowship Committee and has served as a member of the Grant Review Panels for the NHMRC.
He is also the current Honours convenor and an executive member of the Department of Pharmacology.
