Prof Herbert Herzog studied Chemistry, switching to Biochemistry for his PhD, which he obtained from the University of Innsbruck (Austria) in 1989. In 1991, he joined the Garvan Institute in Sydney (Australia) where he studies the role of NPY and other family members like PYY and pancreatic polypeptide, investigating the numerous different functions of these important molecules publishing over 300 articles on this topic. 

Prof Herzog currently holds a NHMRC - Senior Principal Research Fellowship and is the Head of the Eating Disorder Laboratory at the Garvan Institute in Sydney.

Prof Herzog’s primary research interest relates to the creation of new knowledge regarding the role of brain circuitries that control feeding behaviour and how this influences human health. Prof Herzog’s current work focuses on determining the fundamental processes that can lead to the development of obesity, or the other extreme anorexia, especially investigating the brain's role in the regulation of eating behaviour and glucose homeostasis. He is also interested in how homeostatic processes that regulate bodyweight are coordinated with other homeostatic processes in the body, like the one that control bone and fat mass and how these changes with age. Recently he has expanded his interest and also started to investigate the effects of stress on appetite regulation.
