Career Summary

Biography

Tim Roberts is currently the Director of the Tom Farrell Institute for the Environment at the University of Newcastle. He continues to be active in research in the laboratory of his long-time collaborator Associate Professor Hugh Dunstan at the University of Newcastle. He has published some 110 papers. Originally from South Australia, he has traveled extensively since completing his B Sc at the University of Adelaide and his PhD at Flinders University, coming to the University of Newcastle in 1974 and moving to Singapore in July 2006 to set up the University of Newcastle campus in Singapore.

On retiring from his position as inaugural Dean of the Singapore campus he joined James Cook University Singapore Campus as Dean of Research with the goal of establishing a research ethos on the campus. Having completed this task he returned to Newcastle as Conjoint Professor to pursue his research until asked to take over the Tom Farrell Institute Directorship in 2010.

Tim Roberts is an acknowledged expert in the area of chronic pain and fatigue and autism. His group has made significant progress leading to the understanding that these conditions have a common underlying biochemical pathology which relates to the metabolism of the sufferer being in a chronic catabolic state. These findings have reoriented the field to now focus on chronic infection as the primary underlying cause of chronic pain and fatigue; this chronic catabolic state being the host response to this chronic infection. In a study of free-ranging dogs associated with an outback community in the Northern Territory, his group has found this first incidence of Ehrlichia infection (Anaplasma platys) in Australia. .

Research Expertise
Tim Roberts is a scientist interested in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Autism, Dyslexia, chronic infection, sports supplements, amino acid supplements, environmental sustainability, environmental resilience who currently focuses on two areas of research: environmental sustainability and metabolomics of chronic disease: (1) Environmental Sustainability: as Director of the Tom Farrell Institute for the Environment his research focuses on finding regionals solutions for a sustainable future through research projects in conservation and biodiversity, water and soil and social license to bring about sustainable futures. (2) Underlying causation of chronic disease: in association with long time collaborator Professor Hugh Dunstan our multidisciplinary research group is investigating underlying biochemical and microbiological anomalies in polysymptomatic illness.

The premise behind our approach is that all disease has a molecular basis. We thus take a homogeneous population of individuals exhibiting one disease or symptom set and analyse the metabolism of each individual by measuring a myriad of cellular metabolites using gas chromatography in the blood, urine and faeces. When correlation analysis is used to compare the complex metabolic profile of affected individuals with controls we are able to pinpoint the areas of metabolism that are changed. We consistently find that there is a distinct profile obtained that correlates with a particular symptom set. These data then can be used to propose to the clinician treatment options that often are aimed at normalising the metabolism of the individual and further lines of investigation directed at isolating underlying infectious agents.

Our studies initially began with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome patients. We have since published on rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, temporomandibular joint dysfunction, dyslexia in the form of scotopic sensitivity and autism. The changes we see in these apparently unrelated disorders are very similar and reflect the catabolic state seen when the body’s immune system is fighting chronic infection. We have developed new approaches to metabolic research by developing a capacity for multivariate analyses of complex biochemical and microbial datasets.

Teaching Expertise
From 1974 until 2006 Tim Roberts taught immunology and general biology in the School of Environmental & Life Sciences. Currently he gives guest lectures in microbiology and environmental science and management

Staphylococcus lugdunensis has emerged as a major cause of community-acquired and nosocomial infections. This bacterium can rapidly adapt to changing environmental conditions to survive and capitalize on opportunities to colonize and infect through wound surfaces. It was proposed that S. lugdunensis would have underlying alterations in metabolic homeostasis to provide the necessary levels of adaptive protection. The aims of this project were to examine the impacts of subtle variations in environmental conditions on growth characteristics, cell size and membrane fatty acid composition in S. lugdunensis. Liquid broth cultures of S. lugdunensis were grown under varying combinations of pH (6-8), temperature (35-39°C) and osmotic pressure (0-5% sodium chloride w/w) to reflect potential ranges of conditions encountered during transition from skin surfaces to invasion of wound sites. The cells were harvested at the mid-exponential phase of growth and assessed for antibiotic minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC), generation time, formation of small colony variants, cell size (by scanning electron microscopy) and membrane fatty acid composition. Stress regimes with elevated NaCl concentrations resulted in significantly higher antibiotic resistance (MIC) and three of the combinations with 5% NaCl had increased generation times (P<0.05). It was found that all ten experimental growth regimes, including the control and centroid cultures, yielded significantly different profiles of plasma membrane fatty acid composition (P<0.0001). Alterations in cell size (P<0.01) were also observed under the range of conditions with the most substantial reduction occurring when cells were grown at 39°C, pH 8 (514±52 nm, mean ± Standard Deviation) compared with cells grown under control conditions at 37°C with pH 7 (702±76 nm, P<0.01). It was concluded that S. lugdunensis responded to slight changes in environmental conditions by altering plasma membrane fatty acid composition, growth rates and morphology to achieve optimal adaptations for survival in changing environments. © 2014 Crompton et al.
