School of Biomedical Sciences, The University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia

Stuart Mazzone, PhD is an Associate Professor of Physiology, Head of Respiratory Neuroscience and the current Chair of Research in the School of Biomedical Sciences at the University of Queensland, Australia. He is a current serving member of the Australian and American cough guidelines expert panels.

His current research focuses on the anatomy, physiology and pharmacology of the neural pathways regulating airway defensive reflexes and, more recently, how immune mechanisms alter airway neural function. He is well known in the field for his work in animals and humans describing the brain processing of sensory-related information arising from the airways and defining how this information is integrated into the neural circuits involved in the autonomic regulation of airway smooth muscle tone and the cough reflex.

He is an associate editor of Frontiers in Physiology, Frontiers in Neuroscience and has published over 80 original articles and reviews.
