Personal profile


Peter G Stanton

Head, Male Fertility Regulation Group

Centre for Reproductive Health

Hudson Institute of Medical Research


Peter G Stanton, PhD, is a senior scientist at the Hudson Institute of Medical Research (formerly Prince Henry’s Institute), Melbourne, where he leads the Male Fertility Regulation Laboratory, and is a senior lecturer in the Dept of Molecular and Translational Sciences at Monash University. He has an international reputation for his research on the molecular regulation of animal and human spermatogenesis, and in particular for his work on the blood-testis barrier and Sertoli cell function in the adult. Recently, he has applied quantitative proteomics to find new ways to diagnose and understand the aetiology of male infertility. He has published 112 articles, reviews and book chapters, and has supervised 10 PhD graduates. His research has been funded primarily by multiple program and project grants from the National Health and Medical Research Council (Aust).
