Personal profile

Research interests

Associate Professor Christian Moro is the Science and Scholarship Domain Lead of the Bond University Medical Program and also lectures into Biomedical and Health Sciences. Christian sits as one of Australia's most awarded science and medical educator, and has received the Reimagine Education Worldwide Teaching Award (2021), AAUT Teaching Excellence award (2020), the AFR Higher Education Award (2019), and an Australian Government AOLT Citation for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning (2018).

Christian's laboratory research investigates the physiology associated with diseases of the urinary bladder, with a particular focus on the inner lining of the bladder, the urothelium, and its role mediating bladder dysfunctions such as overactive bladder and incontinence. As a member of the Bond University Centre for Urology Research, Christian investigates the role of modern medications prescribed for bladder dysfunction and their potential to directly modulate urothelial activity. Christian’s research also aims to isolate and identify alternative pharmacological targets for future treatments, and his laboratory research has been funded by various government, community and industry bodies.

Dr Moro also undertakes research into medical and science education and communication and has developed a range of novel technological tools that enhance student learning, participation and interaction. Christian is a former secondary school teacher with experience in Australia and the United Kingdom, and continues to educate teachers in developing countries to improve their teaching techniques and knowledge. His current educational interest revolves around maximising the provision of hands-on activities coupled with online content to assist university students to make the most of their learning and course engagement.
