Biographies

Michael Rand was professor of pharmacology at the University of Melbourne 1965-1991. His research was in autopharmacology, the pharmacological study of the natural constituents of the body which have regulatory roles. In particular he worked on serotonin, the cholinergic-link (also called the Burn-Rand hypothesis), and autonomic neuroeffector transmission. He was an international leader in research on nitregenic transmitters. Rand was tireless in advancing the disciplines of pharmacology, clinical pharmacology and toxicology in Australia and internationally. He served on numerous committees on poisons, evaluation of pesticides and agricultural chemicals, and the acceptance of food additives for Victorian, national and international organisations. With W. C. Bowman he published (1968, 2nd ed. 1980) which was considered internationally as a major text in the field.
