Nick Hudson was awarded his PhD through the Zoology department of the University of Queensland, after travelling from the UK on a Britain-Australia Society funded Northcote Scholarship. Before taking his current position in the School of Agriculture and Food Sciences he worked for the CSIRO in a multi-disciplinary Systems Biology group. Through this group he helped develop methods using various RNA and DNA based biotechnologies to predict phenotypes of commercial importance in cattle, sheep, pigs and chickens. He continues to be interested in fostering efficient, environmentally friendly production enterprises using modern 'omics technologies. Nick is also interested in the development, physiology, metabolism and conservation of native Australian species.
