Web Supervisor & Academic Status
Jonathan Gleadle is a Consultant Nephrologist at Flinders Medical Centre and Professor of Medicine at Flinders University and is continuing to pursue his activities in clinical medicine, teaching and research. For the preceeding five years he was the University Lecturer in Nephrology and General Medicine at Oxford University. He is currently heading an independent Research Group at Flinders focusing on the regulation of gene expression and microRNAs by oxygen and its implications for renal disease and renal cancer. His research interests have focussed on the sensing of oxygen by cells; a topic with broad relevance to the understanding of cellular physiology, ischaemic disease and cancer.

Research over the last five years has focussed on the clinical relevance of microRNAs in renal disease and renal cancer and on molecular and cellular responses to oxygen. The sensing of oxygen by cells has broad relevance to the understanding of cellular physiology, renal failure, ischaemic disease and cancer. Recent clinical studies have also examined the clinical relevance of microRNAs to renal disease and viruses, the role of Cardiac MRI in renal patients, renal dysfunction following cardiac surgery and the use of novel surfaces to facilitate novel urine diagnostics and anti-infective strategies.
