Glenn Harrison completed a BSc (Hons) majoring in physiology and biochemistry. Between honours and PhD he worked as a perfusionist in open heart surgery at The Prince Charles Hospital, Brisbane. He completed his PhD in cardiac physiology during 1996 before postdocing for two years at the Vrije University in The Netherlands sponsored by the Dutch Heart Foundation. His early work was in isolated heart preparations and he has perfused mammalian hearts from mice to man with many amid. Glenn’s research has translated into the myocardial adaptation to diet and exercise in health and disease. His research interests and publications can be clustered into the following themes.     

  • Correlating physiological and pathological models of cardiac hypertrophy
  • Impact of dietary oil consumption and exercise on cardiac structure and function
  • Myocardial energy metabolism, transfer and signaling
  • Mechanisms regulating cardiac ischemia-reperfusion injury

Glenn also has 20 years of tertiary teaching experience, mostly within large class (300+) first and second year health science courses. His student-centred teaching philosophy and approach has gained him comprehensive insight into the transitional issues facing these cohorts. He pioneered research into 2nd year (sophomore) slump here in Australia and has presented his findings at local and International Learning and Teaching conferences.

In his spare time (sic) Glenn enjoys fishing, motorcycle riding and naturally….bearding.
