Simon Gandevia (MD PhD DSc FAA FRACP) trained at the University of New South Wales and the Prince Henry Hospital. He has broad research interests in human movement control and he has used a wide range of techniques to examine fundamental aspects of pathophysiology in human neuroscience and clinical medicine. Major areas of work include proprioception, motor control and respiratory muscle control.  The research often sits at the interface between clinical medicine and human neurophysiology. He has a major interest in motor impairments and led an NHMRC program into it.

Professor Gandevia is one of the four Founding Scientists of the Prince of Wales Medical Research Institute (in 1992), which was later renamed NeuRA. He was also a founder of the 3T Clinical Research Imaging Centre and is an honorary clinical neurophysiologist at the Prince of Wales Hospital. He has served on many editorial boards, including the Journal of Physiology and is currently Associate Editor for the Journal of Applied Physiology (since 2005). His clinical work includes patients with neuromuscular disorders and those with spinal cord injury.
