Available for student supervision
Dr. Toby Mansell is an early post-doctoral researcher in the Inflammatory Origins and Molecular Immunity groups at the Murdoch Children's Research Institute, and an Honorary Fellow with the University of Melbourne Department of Paediatrics.

Having completed a Masters of Statistics and a PhD in Paediatrics (thesis ‘Combined genetic and epigenetic analysis to identify early life determinants of complex phenotype ‘) with the University of Melbourne, Toby is using his hybrid training in molecular research and biostatistics to investigate the complex relationships of prenatal and early life exposures, genetic variation, early life inflammation and childhood cardiometabolic health, with a strong interest in integrated 'omic data (particularly genomic, epigenomic, metabolomic and lipidomic platforms).

His research includes studies in several Australia cohorts (including Barwon Infant Study, Child Health CheckPoint, and Childhood Overweight BioRepository of Australia), with both national and international collaborations (including the Baker IDI Institute, Liggins Institute, University of California, University of Bristol, Chongqing Medical University, and University of British Columbia).
