Dr Donny Camera

Senior Lecturer, Physiology


I am an early-to-mid career teaching and research academic in the field of human physiology, anatomy and biochemisty. In 2013, I completed my PhD titled, ‘The Specificity of Training Adaptation in Skeletal Muscle.’ My research interests centre on how dietary protein type and amount can promote and maintain muscle mass and function across the lifespan. I enjoying teaching and currently convene the undergraduate Neurophysiology and Genes and Genomics units within the Health Sciences degree. I am also the Biomedical Sciences Major convenor and Health Sciences Honours Co-Ordinator.
