Professor Gary Housley
Gary Housley is a research Scientia Professor in the School of Medical Sciences, University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia, where he holds the Chair of Physiology and is Director of the Translational Neuroscience Facility. His research program lies within sensori-motor systems and neuroprotection where he has contributed prominently to the understanding of cochlear physiology around noise and age-related hearing loss. His research program engages with expansion of the understanding of molecular signalling associated with neural development, injury and repair and his laboratory has established an innovative gene delivery platform for targeted expression of therapeutic DNA using bionic array-directed gene electrotransfer (BaDGE®). He is program leader for the cochlear implant neurotrophin gene therapy clinical trial, supported by the Garnett Passe and Rodney Williams Memorial Foundation, which is directed to improve hearing with cochlear implants through enhancement of the cochlear implant neural interface by neurotrophin gene augmentation undertaken during cochlear implant surgery.
