Personal profile

Biography

Associate Professor Peter Noble is a Respiratory Physiologist (PhD 2006) in the School of Human Sciences at The University of Western Australia. Since obtaining his PhD, he was self-funded through several NHMRC Fellowships, the last of which ended in 2016. In 2017, he transitioned into a fulltime teaching/research academic position while continuing to apply for competitive funding. The global hypothesis of his research program is that structural and mechanical abnormalities of the airways independently contribute to the severity of obstructive disease and can be directly targeted to improve patient outcomes. He is presently developing optical coherence tomography as a diagnostic tool for use in patients with asthma.
