Personal profile

Boris Budiono is a Lecturer of Biomedical Sciences (Physiology) at Charles Sturt University, Port Macquarie campus and leads the Hypermobility and Mast Cell Diseases laboratory within the School of Dentistry and Medical Sciences. 

Dr Budiono received his B.BioMed.Sci (Hons) and PhD in 2017 from the Heart Foundation Research Centre, Griffith University investigating the immunological changes due to physical activity, and genomic/proteomic effects of forced and voluntary exercise in diabetic mouse models. 

Research Interests

His major focus of research is Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS) /Hypermobility Spectrum Disorders (HSD), Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS), and Cardiovascular Disease (CVD):

  • Qualitative research in Allied Health interventions for the EDS/MCAS population: Ehlers Danlos Syndrome is a commonly misunderstood condition by medical professionals. This results in suboptimal management and treatments. Our work in this area aims to understand such discrepancies to educate clinicians, and to improve health outcomes of patients. We work closely with Allied Health partners in Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Pathology and Podiatry, investigating topics such as chronic pain, and optimising patient-centred care.   
  • Phenolic compounds in red/purple rice as an anti-inflammatory/anti-oxidant against degranulation of mast cells: Due to CSU’s strong reputation in Agricultural research, we are collaborating with our Haematology and Food Sciences department to determine the effects of phenolic compounds on mast cell activation. Using cell culture models, we are able to understand genomic and proteomic changes to determine ways to better manage or treat food sensitivities and allergies.
  • The molecular and cellular underpinnings of Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and its co-morbidities: Although in its infancy, our lab aims to investigate the interrelated comorbidities of EDS, MCAS and Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS) with a focus on immunological changes to connective tissue brought on by physical activity, dietary, and pharmacological interventions. 
  • The molecular effects of training, de-training, and re-training: Investigating the underlying mechanisms of muscle and vasculature remodelling in murine models and humans from previous work from Griffith and Bond University.
  • Learning & Teaching research: As a lecturer, Dr Budiono is involved in teaching undergraduate students, with focus on student retention, innovative delivery of physiology teaching and incorporation of technology in the classroom.


Dr Budiono is an experienced lecturer in the Biomedical Sciences. He is currently teaching the following subjects for first and second-year Allied Health students:

  • BMS161 - Health and the Human Body: cells, immunity and musculoskeletal system
  • BMS263 - Foundational Pharmacology & Pathophysiology for Allied Health Practice
  • BMS255 - Neuroscience for Health Practice

He has previously taught subjects such as Anatomy, Physiology, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Pharmacology and Pathophysiology.
