Tim Karl graduated from the Leipniz University of Hanover (Germany) in 2003. After a first postdoctoral position at the Garvan Institute, he established his own research team at Neuroscience Research Australia. In 2016, he moved to the School of Medicine (Western Sydney University) to continue his research on the neuro-behavioural consequences of gene-environment interactions in animal models for schizophrenia and the discovery of new therapeutic targets for dementia. Tim’s research also aims to enhance the validity of rodent models and the well-being of test animals in medical research by providing more stimulating housing conditions and utilising more natural test system models.
Prof Karl has published over 90 research articles, reviews and book chapters and is currently funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council, the Australian Research Council, and the Ainsworth Medical Research Innovation Fund.
