Personal profile

Public Profile

Prof Amanda Page is well recognised nationally and internationally for her expertise in vagal innervation of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, particularly with regards to GI vagal afferent satiety signalling in health and obesity. She combines expertise in neurophysiology, pharmacology, chronobiology, molecular biology and whole animal physiology. She has published 95 peer-reviewed articles (> 60% on vagal afferent function), 62 in the last 10 years, the majority in top ranking journals (e.g. Gut (2/143)). Indicative of her leadership role, >67% are as first or senior author. In the last 7 years, four publications have received major global media coverage (e.g. Daily Mail, UK; Toronto Sun; The Atlantic, USA; ABC, Channels 7 & 9 News). Significance is highlighted by invitation to write 17 reviews/chapters/editorials and present at 15 national & 32 international institutes/conferences, since 2010. Evidence also includes her ability to attract over $13.4M in research funding; $4.8M as CIA since 2010. To date, 8 PhD and 13 Honours students have successfully completed their degrees under Prof Page’s supervision. She currently supervises 12 PhD. Further, Prof Page holds a number of senior research leadership positions, including Director of Nutrition, Diabetes & Gut Health (South Australian Health & Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI)), Director of Research Education (Faculty of Health & Medical Sciences (FHMS)) and member of the FHMS Research Committee, providing strategic leadership in research and research education.
