Dr Jeremy Smith

Dr Jeremy Smith began his research career at The University of Western Australia, where he was awarded Honours (1998) and his PhD (2003). He conducted post-doctoral research at the University of Washington and then Monash University working extensively on kisspeptin, a novel neuropeptide, vital in the neuroendocrine control of fertility. This work represents an exciting new field of neuroendocrinology. The recent discovery of mice and humans lacking the kisspeptin receptor and their infertile phenotype has sparked scientists to explore the actions of kisspeptin. Jeremy’s research hopes to provide significant advancement to our knowledge of kisspeptin, its critical role in stimulating fertility, and potential therapeutic potential. Twitter: @DrJeremyTSmith
