A/Professor Richard Pearson was appointed as the Head of the Cancer Signalling Laboratory at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in 1995 after 3 years as a Human Frontiers of Science Fellow at the Friedrich Miescher Institute in Basel Switzerland. He is also Co-Head of the Oncogenic Signalling and Growth Control Program at Peter Mac, is an NHMRC Senior Research Fellow and Principal Fellow in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Melbourne. A major focus of his research is to understand the molecular basis of the regulation of ribosome biogenesis, protein synthesis and cell growth and to use this knowledge to address how deregulation of these processes contributes to malignant transformation. A/Prof Pearson currently receives project grant support from both NHMRC and Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and iwas awarded an NHMRC Program Grant with Prof Grant McArthur, A/Prof Ross Hannan and Prof Rod Hicks to understand the mechanisms by which oncogenic signaling can be targeted to treat cancer, starting in 2014. He has co-authored 85 peer reviewed articles with an average citation rate per publication of 90. He has served on NHMRC Grant Review Panels from 2006-08 and on the NHMRC Assigners Academy in 2012 and 2013.
