Research Interests

Professor Clarke's seminal studies on the measurement of hypothalamic secretion of GnRH in sentient animals were published in 1982 and he has contributed extensively to the field of reproductive neuroendocrinology for 35 years. His laboratory expanded to embrace many other aspects of Neuroendocrinology. In particular, his work has utilised sheep models, which allow a range of studies not easily undertaken in small laboratory species. He has developed a number of novel neuroendocrine methodologies that allow analysis ranging from the whole animal down to the single cell and subcellular function. These techniques have enabled a range of national and international collaborations, with grant funding from Australian and offshore sources. In addition, his laboratory undertakes a range of contract research projects.
