Dr Andrew Pask is an Associate Professor and Reader and ARC Future Fellow in the School of BioSciences at the University of Melbourne. His research focuses on development of the reproductive system and particularly the influence of hormones and endocrine disruptors on reproductive disease. His current research is focused on hypospadias, one of the most common birth defects in humans affecting 1:125 live male births in Australia.
