Professor Paul Timpson PhD

FAK Biology Adviser

Paul completed his PhD at the Beatson Institute for Cancer Research, UK in 2002 before moving to the Garvan Institute in 2003 to investigate growth factor receptor trafficking in breast cancer and head and neck cancers. Today, Paul heads the Invasion and Metastasis lab which has an ongoing interest in the development of novel multi-disciplinary live imaging techniques to investigate molecular dynamics of cancer cells in vivo and using these techniques to understand cancer in the context of the surrounding environment. Pinpointing the molecular drivers of cancer progression and the environmental cues that cause resistance to current therapies are the focus of his group’s research.
