Personal profile


Marianne works in the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences at Monash University as a Research Fellow.


Marianne lectures in Physiology and is the assessment coordinator for the graduate entry medical programme. 

Marianne’s research focusses on the mechanisms that regulate the function of resistance arteries in health and disease. She also has a keen interest in the developmental origins of health and disease. Exposure to early life insults can have profound effects on vascular function in the offspring. Persistence of vascular dysfunction into adulthood can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease.  In collaboration with colleagues in Australia and overseas, she is investigating the mechanisms responsible for vascular dysfunction in models of early life insult ranging from nutritional deficiencies through to substance abuse. She supervises Honours and PhD students. 

Marianne is the president of the Australian and New Zealand Microcirculation Society and member of the International Liaison Committee for Microcirculation.
