Personalized cancer treatments and network medicine
Prof. Daly’s research focus is growth factor signalling mechanisms and their deregulation in cancer. He is using cutting edge techniques to characterize, at a global level, changes in signalling networks in cancer cells. In his talk he will review recent advances in the development of targeted cancer treatments, and how his ‘network’ level approach may provide a new strategy for molecular sub-classification of human cancers and the identification of novel therapeutic targets and biomarkers.
Roger was awarded his PhD from the University of Liverpool, UK, before taking up positions at the Imperial Cancer Research Fund, London, followed by New York University Medical Centre, USA. He established the Signal Transduction Group at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research, Sydney, in 1993, and recently moved to Monash University, where he is Professor of Signalling Network Biology and Head of the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.
