Research Biography

Associate Professor Dixon is the Senior Medical Scientist in the Intensive and Critical Care Unit, Flinders Medical Centre, Associate Professor in the Dept of Critical Care Medicine, Flinders University and Head of the Lung Injury Research Laboratory. She also holds full academic status as Assoc Prof at Northen Ontario School of Medicine, Lakehead and Laurentian Universities, Canada. Assoc. Prof. Dixon obtained her PhD in Paediatrics, Flinders University in 2004 studying innate/mucosal immunology of breast milk in response to respiratory infections and allergy. Since 2004 she has continued to establish a trackrecord in innate immunology associated with acute and chronic lung injury including ALI/ARDS, infant bronchiolitis and chronic heart failure. Her success is evidenced by research funding, ~$1,430,000, as well as a publication record of >40 peer reviewed articles. Assoc. Prof. Dixon is regularly invited to review for premier international journals and to present her work at both national and international meetings.

Research Interests

Associate Professor Dani-Louise Dixon has developed a track record based on research interests in leukocyte regulation of lipid and protein mediators of innate/mucosal defence systems with particular emphasis on the lung. Assoc. Prof. Dixon provided some of the first direct evidence for the hypothesised immunological link between innate immunity in mothers and their breast-fed infants. She has established a trackrecord in laboratory studies of acute and chronic lung injury both in vitro and in vivo, as well as in clinical studies. Specific areas of interest include mediator regulation of cellular activation and infiltration of the lung and the resultant lung remodelling, and the implications on pulmonary function including respiratory mechanics and fluid regulation.
