His research involves mapping and interrogating signalling networks and energy sensing mechanisms underlying exercise and metabolism in cellular, animal and human systems. Nolan earned his PhD in 2012 from Indiana University (USA), where he was named the Chancellor’s Scholar for the Graduate School Doctoral Program. Prior to joining Australian Catholic University in 2016, he undertook his postdoctoral research in Sydney at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research and the University of Sydney Charles Perkins Centre.
