Jane Carland gained her PhD (2005) from the University of Sydney, Australia under the supervision of Professors Mary Collins (Chebib) and Graham Johnston. In 2005 she took up a post-doctoral position with Professors Jeremy Lambert and John Peters at the University of Dundee, UK and returned to Australia as a UNSW Vice-Chancellors Research Fellow in 2007. Jane subsequently worked within the Transporter Biology Group in the Discipline of Pharmacology, University of Sydney. Jane’s background in pharmacology extends from molecular pharmacology to quality use of medicines. The main focus of Jane’s research has been structure-function studies of neurotransmitter receptors and transporters. Most recently, Jane’s work focusses on immunosuppressant therapy in lung transplant, extending use of metformin to complex patient populations (including heart failure and renal failure), as well as exploring informed consent – an ethical tenant that is central to the researcher-participant relationship in clinical research. Jane’s love of research is reflected in her interest in conveying research outcomes to the community, from pre-school science classes to School Outreach programs.

My Research Activities

I have a strong background in pharmacology research, extending from molecular pharmacology of neurotransmission to understanding and improving the use of medicines in practice. My work currently focusses on immunosuppressant therapy in lung transplant, extending use of metformin to complex patient populations (including heart failure and renal failure), as well as exploring informed consent – an ethical tenant that is central to the researcher-participant relationship in clinical research. My love of research is reflected in my interest in conveying research outcomes to the community, from pre-school science classes to School Outreach programs.
