Guest speaker: Professor David Bowtell
Co-Head Women's Cancer Programme and Group Leader (Peter Mac Callum Cancer Centre); Principal Investigator (Australian Ovarian Cancer Study)
Professor David Bowtell is a Fellow and a member of Council of the Australian Academy of Science and a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Health and Medical Science. He is currently based at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, where he was Director of Research for the decade 2000-2009. During that period he had a leading role in the re-development and re-location to Parkville of what is now Australia’s largest Cancer Centre.
With an extensive background, spanning some 25yrs in human cancer genomics, Prof. Bowtell is regarded by his peers as one of the world’s pre-eminent ovarian cancer researchers. In 2001 he initiated and led the establishment of the “Australian Ovarian Cancer Study” with a special grant from the US Department of Defence. Prof. Bowtell has also established one of a handful of cancer rapid-autopsy studies in the world that provides an enabling platform for research in ovarian, melanoma, breast and prostate cancers.
In 2015 Nature (a prestigious, global scientific journal), Prof. Bowtell’s paper was voted the most impactful publication in women’s health by the Columbia Hospital Foundation (USA). In 2020 he was asked to contribute to EXPeditions–an initiative to record conversations with the world’s best scientific minds and in 2022, he was invited, to a “Cancer Research UK–US National Institutes of Health” strategy meeting, to consider major challenges now confronting cancer researchers, worldwide.
