Biography

Associate Professor Peter Stanton’s research interests lie in the hormonal regulation of cell junctions in the testis, as part of the search for testicular targets of male hormonal contraception. His work has focussed on cell junctions between Sertoli and germ cells, and more recently between Sertoli cells, with particular reference to their regulation by gonadotrophins.

With specific skills in biomolecular separation and characterisation, and has applied these skills to the assessment of serum and testicular steroids and hormones in rats and men during male hormonal contraception.

More recently, A/Prof Stanton has worked closely with colleagues to oversee the establishment of a core-facility proteomics laboratory at the Hudson Institute of Medical Research. A/Prof Stanton is now involved in a program of proteomic studies aimed at identifying new contraceptive targets and diagnostic markers of various conditions including male and female infertility. He is also involved with Hudson Institute colleagues in inhibin research.
