Professor Bob Seamark
Prof Bob Seamark BAgSc, PhD, joined the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology in 1969 as Senior Lecturer in Endocrinology and Director of the Endocrinology Laboratories at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital. He left in 1995 to direct the Pest Animal Cooperative Research Center, based at the CSIRO Division of Wildlife and Ecology in Canberra (1995-2002), and subsequently, Flinders Medical Research Institute (2002-2006). He is currently a Professor in the Deptartment of Medical Biochemistry at Flinders and plays an active teaching role in the Flinders Medical School Graduate Entry Program.
His background in Agricultural Science and his active research links with the livestock industry, played a key role in providing the human and animal resources necessary for the establishment of the scientific framework and skill base in Reproductive Biology and Advanced Reproductive Technologies. This was paramount in positioning the Department as a leading research center in Human Reproductive Medicine.
His eclectic range of interests are reflected in the broad folio of research activites documented in the 200 plus papers he published in active collaboration with his clinical collegues, 35 PhD students, whose training he supervised, and the steady stream of leading Visiting Research Fellows the Department attracted from around the world.
