Associate Professor Glenda Gobe is known internationally as a molecular pathology expert specialising in the role of apoptosis in kidney disease. She is Co-Director of the Centre for Kidney Disease Research, Faculty of Medicine, The University of Queensland, and is a Chief Investigator in the NHMRC Chronic Kidney Disease Centre of Research Excellence and CKD QLD. She has overseas training from the College of Physicians and Surgeons, Columbia University with Professor Ralph Buttyan, one of the leading world experts in the molecular biology of apoptosis and specialising in prostate cancer research.

Her current research uses high power molecular imaging to focus on the role and drug targeting of oxidative stress and mitochondrial dysfunction in renal disease, including chronic kidney disease and renal cancer. She also carries out research into biomarker identification and testing for kidney disease. Glenda Gobe is the author of over 150 original research articles, reviews and book chapters. She lectures in molecular pathobiology at the Schools of Medicine, Biomedical Sciences and Chemistry and Microbial Sciences, The University of Queensland, and the School of Biomolecular and Physical Sciences at Griffith University. She has supervised 19 students to successful completion of PhD, MSc, MMedSc, and Honours enrolments.
