Abstract Glenn King secured a PhD from the University of Sydney before doing his postdoctoral studies at the University of Oxford. After academic stints at the University of Sydney and the University of Connecticut Health Center, he joined the Institute for Molecular Bioscience at The University of Queensland in 2007, where he is currently an NHMRC Principal Research Fellow. The current focus of King's research is venom-based drug discovery, in particular the development of analgesics and anti-stroke therapies. Several molecules discovered in his lab have already progressed to preclinical studies. King currently serves on the Scientific Advisory Board of three companies and the Editorial Board of four journals. He is a former President of the Australian Society for Biophysics, current President of the Australian & New Zealand Society for Magnetic Resonance and a member of the Executive Council of the International Society for Toxinology. In addition, King is a Fellow of the American Academy of Microbiology, and in 2013, he received the Sir Bob Robertson Award from the Australian Society for Biophysics and the Beckman Coulter Discovery Science Award from the Australian Society for Biochemistry & Molecular Biology.
