Research Interest:

Profile:
Dale Gerke obtained his first University degree in Dentistry, followed by a Science Honours degree in Oral Biology. Several years later he obtained his PhD in Pharmacology and thus started his long and distinguished involvement in scientific and clinical research (he has numerous scientific publications to his name). After ten years running several successful dental practices, he completed his specialist degree in Prosthodontics and was also admitted to the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons as a Fellow in Operative Dentistry and later also as a Member in Prosthodontics. In 1974, he published the results of a medical clinical trial he conducted which investigated the interactions of the multitude of drugs being prescribed to patients in a large public hospital. As a result of this study, he began to realise that pharmaceutical drugs were not necessarily the ideal treatment for many in the population. In the late 1970s, he published many more scientific and medical results relating to interactions between various drugs and the vascular system. Following these studies, he realised that some drugs acted synergistically together with other drugs to potentiate (magnify) the effect of each individual drug. This warned him to be aware of possible unexpected actions some drugs/ingredients have.
