Biography

Dr Narayan is Senior Lecturer of Animal Science at the School of Science and Health based on the Hawkesbury campus, Western Sydney University. Edward graduated with PhD degree in Biology from the University of the South Pacific and pioneered non-invasive reproductive and stress endocrinology tools for amphibians - the novel development and validation of non-invasive enzyme immunoassays for the evaluation of reproductive hormonal cycle and stress hormone responses to environmental stressors. Dr Narayan was also recipient of Gold Medal Award for undergraduate Bachelor of Science degree from USP.

Dr Narayan leads the Stress Lab (Comparative Physiology and Endocrinology) at the Western Sydney University's Hawkesbury Campus.

For post-doc Edward joined Griffith University, Queensland with successful Vice-Chancellor's postdoctoral fellowship. Edward initiated an innovative long-term research program based on the Conservation Physiology of wildlife. Edward's dynamic career research platform is based on the thematic areas of comparative vertebrate physiology, stress endocrinology, reproductive endocrinology, animal health and welfare, and conservation biology.

Edward's research team comprising of supervised Honours, Masters and PhD students (and numerous student volunteers) have made significant new discoveries, including understanding the sub-clinical physiological impacts of the debilitating pathogenic disease (chytridiomycosis) on amphibians; the physiological impacts and fitness consequences of acute and chronic environmental stressors on amphibians.

Edward has also developed non-invasive stress hormone monitoring tools for marsupials such as the Koala, Woylie and the endangered Greater Bilby. Edward has also studied the stress physiology, health and welfare of Tigers in Australian and Indian Zoos.

He has extensive postdoctoral research fellowship training in institutions spanning 4 countries (New Zealand-Landcare Research), Australia (Griffith University), India (Australian Academy of Science Early Career Fellowship – University of Pune) and Canada (Department of Biomedical Sciences, University of Saskatchewan).

Edward has supervised 40 undergraduate special topics, Honours, Masters and PhD students in Australia and from overseas.

Edward has published over 60 peer reviewed research in collaboration with researchers in Australia such as Murdoch University, University of Melbourne, Macquarie Uni, Deakin Uni and Griffith University, and internationally (USA, India, Canada and New Zealand). Edward also has active on-going research collaborations internationally (e.g. India, Argentina, Vietnam, Canada, Brazil and USA).

Edward also provides consultation support based on Animal Welfare related work. He currently holds membership of the Endocrine Society of Australia, International Association of Stress Physiologists, Society for Experimental Biology, Australia & New Zealand Society for Comparative Physiology and Biochemistry and International Society for Wildlife Endocrinology.

Dr Edward Narayan lead's the STRESS PHYSIOLOGY LABORATORY at the Western Sydney University: https://sites.google.com/site/edwardnarayanphysiologylab/home/research-overview

Stress labs main research themes are as follows: 

Conservation Physiology, Comparative Physiology, Stress Physiology, Adrenal Cortex Hormones , Wildlife Management Animal Ecology, Animal Health Wildlife Biology, Metabolism & Fitness, Reproductive Endocrinology, Immune Function, Production Animals, Animal Welfare Glucocorticoids, Endangered Species, Climate Change, Ecology & Evolution, Neurobiology & Brain Physiology.

Edward developed non-invasive reproductive and stress hormone monitoring tools for threatened wildlife, including amphibians, small mammals and large mammal species from Australia, Fiji and India. Using innovative physiological tools,  evaluated the sub-lethal impacts of pervasive environmental factors (e.g. extreme thermal environments, infectious disease Chytridiomycosis and invasive species) on free-living wildlife as well as evaluated stress in captive breeding programs and managed semi-free ranging populations.

Dr Narayan has written major reviews and book chapters based on the fundamental themes of Physiological Resilience of Animals to Extreme Environmental Changes; Conservation Physiology (Big Cats, native mammals and amphibians).
