Dr Amanda Cox
Menzies Health Institute Queensland (MHIQ) and Griffith University, Southport, QLD
Dr Cox is a Senior Lecturer with the School of Medical Science at Griffith University and a member of the Infection and Immunity Group with the Menzies Health Institute Queensland. She has spent the last 15 years pursuing clinical translation research applying a holistic experimental approach to understand risk factors for disease and evaluate relevant intervention approaches. Her research contributions include consideration of illness risk in elite athletes, one of the earliest probiotic supplementation studies in high performing athletes, and genetic and phenotypic risk scoring approaches in the context of diabetic cardiovascular disease and metabolic disease. Most recently, Dr Cox’s research has focused on the various roles of the gut in obesity-associated inflammation and risk for metabolic disease, the cross-talk between inflammatory and metabolic pathways, and ongoing consideration of mucosal immune networks in chronic disease states.
