About Professor Arthur Conigrave

Professor Conigrave is interested in the links between nutrient-sensing receptors and the metabolic basis of health and disease with an emphasis on food intake and metabolic bone disease. His laboratory’s work focuses on a subgroup of the G-protein coupled receptor superfamily (‘class C’) that includes amino acid sensors involved in triggering gut digestive and hormonal regulatory responses. Having identified binding sites for the nutrient sensors on GPCR class C, his team is characterising the downstream signaling pathways and resultant biological effects. He also has extensively studied the parathyroid gland and mechanisms of parathyroid hormone (PTH) secretion control by the CaSR in normal glands and adenomatous disease in primary hyperparathyroidism.

Prof Arthur Conigrave is the Dean, Sydney Medical School, Professor at the School of Life and Environmental Sciences, and a member of the Charles Perkins Centre.
