Personal profile


Dr Filippe Oliveira convenes a Biomedical Science and Science undergraduate unit (BME3082 - Fetal and Neonatal Development, ~120 students) which is consistently ranked 'Outstandnig' and in the top 9% of units at Monash University. He also coordinates and teaches in postgraduate units in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology. Another important part of his role is to coordinate a suite of accredited professional development courses for healthcare providers and engage with medical industry partners and professional associations to promote health education and clinical skills. In 2022, Filippe was awarded a 'Citation for Outstanding Contributions to Teaching and Learning' by the School of Clinical Science at Monash University.


During Filippe's Master of Science (MSc) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degrees, he investigated the physiological and metabolic outcomes of fetal programming by diet and exercise (Filippe Falcao-Tebas for publications). Filippe is an emerging  leader in his field, with two of his recent first- and corresponding-author papers selected as 'Editor's Choice' and highlighted in separately comissioned 'Perspective Articles' in the Journal of Physiology (Q1; IF 5.182). He is regularly invited to review papers for high-impact journals in the fields of physiology, metabolism, diabetes, nutrition and developmental programming (Publons). Filippe's main research interests are in how environmental exposures early in life play a role in the fetal-placental development and affect the risk of cardiometabolic diseases in adulthood.
