Biographical details

Professor Jennifer Alison is a Professor of Respiratory Physiotherapy, Discipline of Physiotherapy, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Sydney and the Conjoint Professor Allied Health (Chronic Diseases) Sydney Local Health District and Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Sydney. She teaches cardiopulmonary physiotherapy in the BAppSc (Physiotherapy) and Master of Physiotherapy programs at the University of Sydney and led the development of the clinical simulation unit in the Faculty of Health Sciences. Prof Alison was a clinical specialist physiotherapist (Level 6) in Pulmonary Rehabilitation, Department of Physiotherapy, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital until 2015 and now holds an honorary appointment in this department.

As part of her keen interest in health care, and particularly lung health, she is on the executive committee of NSW Agency for Clinical Innovation Respiratory Network (co-chair 2009-2015) and is Chair of the Pulmonary Rehabilitation Network of the Lung Foundation Australia (LFA). Through this latter committee Prof Alison led the development of the web-based Pulmonary Rehabilitation Toolkit for clinicians and is leading the writing of the Australian and New Zealand Guidelines for Pulmonary Rehabilitation.

Prof Alison has published over 100 peer-reviewed journal articles, 8 books/book chapters and over 180 peer-reviewed abstracts, has been awarded over 44 research grants (6 NHMRC project grants), has supervised 16 honours students (3 with university medals), 14 PhD/masters students to completion and currently supervises 11 PhD/masters students.

Prof Alison leads the Lung and Heart Physiotherapy Research Group, University of Sydney and has strong collaborations with the Department of Respiratory Medicine, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital.
