Dr/Nurse John Campbell 


Watch Dr John's session

John Campbell is a semi retired nurse, nurse lecturer, biologist, researcher and author. In addition to clinical work, he has taught long term in the university sector, often with a focus on how physiology and pathophysiology are applied to clinical care. John has always been interested in innovative modalities of education and communication and was a pioneer of multimedia education, starting with VHS tapes in the early nineties. This developed to teaching via DVD recordings, podcasts, narrated PowerPoints, online video, online interactive lectures, journal publications, books and eBooks. This ‘all channels open approach’ has been extended to international education with empirical evidence of efficacy collected and published from cross cultural comparisons between Kenya, Cambodia and the UK. John is now developing the concept of evidence-based communication by interacting and recording with leading scientists and doctors from around the world.

Dr Christopher Neil 


Dr Christopher Neil has practised medicine for 20 years, specialising in cardiology since 2008. Completing his PhD in Adelaide and undertaking post-doctoral research and a fellowship in the UK, he has been committed to clinical excellence in the care of patients with heart failure.

Returning to a specialist consultant post in his hometown of Melbourne, in 2013, he focused on developing improved systems of care for heart failure patients, whilst continuing to research in hospitals, mentor physicians in training and supervise PhD students. His passion, however, has always been for his patients and when he saw their health impacted and their rights infringed, he stood against what he saw as unethical and unjustifiable mandates, resulting in his termination in October 2021. Dr Neil returned to practise this year.

He was a co-founder of AMPS in 2021 and continues as the current President.

A/Prof Peter Parry


Watch Associate Professor Peter's session

Associate Professor Peter Parry is a child & adolescent psychiatrist whose career encompasses that of a medical officer in the Royal Australian Navy; GP and palliative care, prior to training in psychiatry from 1990.

He was until recently a senior psychiatrist with Children’s Health Queensland, position terminated for not being able to conscientiously consent to a gene-based vaccine based on the information he was aware of (principle of informed consent) and currently works as a locum psychiatrist with interstate health services that recognise the protein-based vaccine Spikogen he received in a clinical trial.

He has research and teaching interests in Developmental Psychology, lifestyle factors in mental health, the history and politics of Psychiatric Nosology, and Conflict of Interest issues between Psychiatry/Medicine and the Pharmaceutical Industry. His PhD thesis combined these topics and included research into thousands of pages of internal pharmaceutical industry documents, of which his most cited article was: From Evidence-Based Medicine to Marketing-Based Medicine: Evidence from Internal Industry Documents.

He led a group of psychiatrists who successfully advocated for the RANZCP to sign the www.alltrials.net campaign in 2015. Unfortunately, the All Trials campaign goals have not been met and in Prof. Parry’s view, ‘Marketing-Based Medicine’ rather than ‘Evidence-Based Medicine’ has increasingly dominated in recent years.

Professor Wendy Hoy


Professor Hoy is an internationally recognised researcher of chronic disease in high-risk populations and promoter of health services reform. She is based at the University of Queensland, in Brisbane, Australia.

Dr Hoy is a kidney specialist and directs the Centre for Chronic Disease (CKD) at the University of Queensland. She has long history of research in the health and chronic disease profiles of disadvantaged populations, including Native Americans, African Americans, Sri Lankans and people in El Salvador and, in Australia, Australian Aborigines. She is an expert Advisor to PAHO, the WHO and the Sri Lankan Government on CKD of unknown etiology-CKDu. Her research focus has been on manifestations, course and risk factors for cardiovascular disease, hypertension, CKD and type 2 diabetes. Initiatives have embraced clinical profiling, community screening, treatment programs, a pharmacologic prevention trial, family studies, and genomic profiling. She has been a major contributor to protocols for chronic disease surveillance and management which are widely applied in indigenous health services in Australia, and which inform program development globally. For these she was awarded the AO in 2010. She described the links between common chronic diseases as well as the “multideterminant” disease model, which implies potential benefit from a variety of interventions which target a diverse set of risk factors. She was the first to describe the association of low birthweight with kidney disease. She has long advocated for research on the genetic architecture of chronic disease in Indigenous Australians, and, along with Nagaraj and others, is defining the genomics of CKD in Tiwi Aboriginal people (MRFF 76757). Dr Hoy is Director of CKD.QLD, the first state-based registry of CKD in Australia; and was Director of the NHMRC CKD-CRE. This group has defined the burden, associations, progression, consequences and health care costs of CKD in renal specialty practices in Queensland, and implications of these findings for improved outcomes. She advocates for a more transparent approach to Covid policy and health care, and belongs to several coalitions working towards those ends in Australia and globally.

Julian Gillespie

LLB, BJuris

Julian Gillespie, LLB BJuris, is a lawyer and former barrister, who wrote the legal opinions and prepared the briefs for proceedings (together with Peter Fam and Katie Ashby-Koppens) before the Federal Court and High Court of Australia, seeking those Courts rule the decisions to extend the ‘vaccines’ to babies 6 months to under 6 years, and to children 6-11 year olds as always being invalid at law, as the Secretary of Health lacked the legal power to make those decisions. This is a new and controversial area of Australian law that Australian courts are still learning how to deal with appropriately. 

Julian researches extensively on all matters connected to Australia’s response to SARS-CoV-2, sharing publicly his findings concerning the legislative framework for how the Commonwealth and States and Territory governments centrally organised the response to SARS-CoV-2 from Canberra, drawing attention to the fact Australian governments collectively jettisoned years of scientific research amassed for correctly responding to a pandemic, to instead follow unscientific WHO recommendations which favoured big pharmaceutical interests.

His other ongoing research also includes the failings of AHPRA and National Boards and Health Professionals coerced and gagged by AHPRA.

Recently Julian created and prepared the brief with Katie Ashby-Koppens for current proceedings before the Federal Court of Australia, seeking to assist the court understand the Covid-19 drugs of Pfizer and Moderna always satisfied Australian legal definitions for being properly called GMOs, or genetically modified organisations, as Australia's own Gene Technology Regulator subsequently admitted before a Senate Select hearing in October 2023. More information can be found HERE and HERE. Julian's efforts on this front have included showing similar GMO laws exist in the UK, the EU, and the USA, but were flouted or ignored for the Covid-19 injectables, leaving billions of recipients unaware.
