Head Melbourne School Health Sciences, The University of Melbourne

Professor Bruce Thompson is the current Head, Melbourne School of Sciences at the University of Melbourne, and is regarded as an international expert on clinical respiratory measurement. He is the current President of the Thoracic Society of Australia and New Zealand, the first non-medical president in the history of the society, and in this capacity, Professor Thompson has had a significant role in the SARS-COV2 pandemic, especially as many within the Respiratory Medicine profession have been working on the front line.

Professor Thompson’s strengths are his rare combination of experience in computational and experimental clinical respiratory physiology, combined with clinical laboratory management and testing, allowing the translation of basic science into routine clinical testing.
