Kevin Pedley

Kevin Pedley is an Associate Professor in Physiology at Massey University in Palmerston North, New Zealand, having moved from King’s College London in 2011. Kevin is actively involved in the teaching of first, second and third year undergraduate physiology as well as postgraduate level physiology and is subject leader for the B.Sc. Physiology major. He is also active in research and in supervision of PhD students who are mainly focused on the study of cell function in the gastrointestinal tract. These studies have included the mechanisms of insulin secretion, water and electrolyte transport in colonic epithelium, gastric acid secretion by parietal cells and its targeting and disruption by gastric parasites and, most recently, the mechanisms of iron transport in duodenal enterocytes. His research has employed a variety of experimental approaches including the use of intra-vital fluorescence and confocal imaging of living cells and tissues, epithelia and epithelial organoids grown in vitro, as well as in vivo studies in animals.
