Episode 5 - Professor Paul Fisher

Emerge Australia CEO Anne Wilson is in a very special conversation with Emeritus Professor Paul Fisher, former Head of Microbiology, Department of Physiology, Anatomy, and Microbiology, La Trobe University – whose research interests include the study of neurodegenerative disease, mitochondrial biology, Parkinson’s disease and the roles of mitochondria in disease. Of particular emphasis for us is Prof. Fisher’s dedication and focus in studying blood plasma, white blood cells and mitochrondria from ME/CFS patients.

Paul is Chair of Emerge Australia’s Medical and Scientific Advisory Committee, where his leadership helps shape our research priorities. His ground-breaking work is widely published, recognising ME/CFS as a complex and debilitating disease with a substantial social and economic impact on individuals and their communities.  In this podcast, we learn about the genesis of Professor Fisher’s interest in ME/CFS, his incredible commitment, and why he is such a key champion for our mission.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude for the beautiful interpretation of John Lennon’s Imagine – our soundtrack for our podcast series. We’re so proud that Bloom has chosen to be an Ambassador for Emerge Australia.

  1. After listening to Professor Paul Fisher discussing his work on a PCR test for ME I am wondering if he is aware of, or collaborating with some of the researchers and work currently being done at University of Sunshine Coast in the area of PCR, & viral testing?
