Biographical details

Dr Skilton is a vascular physiologist at the Boden Institute of Obesity, Nutrition, Exercise and Eating Disorders, and is currently the recipient of a NHMRC Career Development Fellowship.

He graduated from the University of Queensland (BSc Hons I) in 1998, and was awarded a PhD from the University of Sydney in 2005 for his doctoral studies on “Nutrition and cardiovascular structure and function”. He has held postdoctoral positions in Lyon, France (2005-2007) and at the Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute in Melbourne (2007-2010).

He has published over 50 scientific papers, in high ranking journals including the Lancet, Journal of the American College of Cardiology, Biological Psychiatry, Neurology, ATVB, Stroke, Hypertension, American Journal of Clinical Nutrition and Pediatrics. He is an editorial board member of theJournal of Developmental Origins of Health and Disease.

He has been a Chief Investigator on research grants totalling over $2m, and has ongoing collaborations with research teams in Finland, Melbourne, Adelaide, and Darwin.

Research interests

Our research focuses on the development and refinement of techniques for assessing early vascular disease, and cross-disciplinary application of these techniques to identify novel cardiovascular risk factors and individuals at risk of having heart attacks and strokes.
