He returned to NUIG to earn his D.Sc. in peptide chemistry in 1974.

Dr. Manning traveled to the United States in 1961 to join the laboratory of Vincent du Vigneaud at Cornell Medical College in New York and in 1964 he served as a research associate in the lab of D.W. Woolley at Rockefeller University.

In 1969, Dr. Manning joined the faculty of the newly formed Medical College of Ohio in Toledo, leaving his position as assistant professor in biochemistry at McGill University in Montreal, a position he held since 1965. He has had a highly successful career at the Medical College of Ohio (which merged with the University of Toledo in 2006 to become the College of Medicine and Life Sciences) where he has carried out his research in collaboration with leading pharmacologists and highly-accomplished visiting scientists from all over the world. Dr. Manning’s research has appeared in over 200 publications and he is the recipient of several awards, including the Sidney H. Ingbar Distinguished Services award from the Endocrine Society in 1994 and the Meienhofer Award for Excellence in Peptide Chemistry in 2010.
