Dr Ian Cock

Lecturer and Project Director

 

 

Dr Cock is currently employed by Griffith University in the position of Senior Lecturer (Biomedical Science).

His expertise encompasses biochemistry, biological chemistry, cell biology, immunology, plant biology and biotechnology. Key areas include metabolism and its regulation, phytochemistry and natural product discovery, redox biochemistry and redox control systems, protein structure/function, enzymology, biomolecular isolation and characterisation techniques, and drug bioassays.

Dr Cock’s research is involved in bioactivity and phytochemical studies into a variety of plant species of both Australian and international origin. His current research interests involve bioactivity, structural and mechanistic studies into the medicinal potential of Aloe vera, South Asian and South American tropical fruits, as well as Australian plants including but not limited to Scaevola spinescens, Pittosporum phylliraeoides, Terminalia ferdinandiana (Kakadu plum), Australian Acacias, Syzygiums, Petalostigmas and Xanthorrhoea johnsonii (grass trees).

Dr Cock is also involved in food science research, in particular, in functional foods with various useful bioactivities. As such, Dr Cock also has ongoing studies into the antimicrobial properties of foods, with the aim of reducing food borne disease and increasing shelf life. He also has an interest in the antioxidant potentials of Australian plants (eg Kakadu plum).

Dr Cock has published extensively in significant peer reviewed journals and is intimately involved in the advancement of knowledge through its dissemination and commercialisation.
