David Waugh

Professor David Waugh is Head of School, Biomedical Sciences, Queensland University of Technology, and Professor of Molecular Oncology and Therapeutics. His primary research interest lies in understanding the importance of inflammatory signals and how they contribute to the initiation and progression of prostate cancers. His work has determined the importance of specific inflammatory chemokine proteins in underpinning the aggressive behaviour of a major population of prostate cancers. Current research is focusing on how inhibiting these signals may constitute new opportunities to improve outcomes for patients with advanced prostate cancer.
