Professor Roger Daly

Signalling Network Laboratory

Welcome to the Daly Lab

The goal of the Signalling Network Laboratory is to characterise - at the molecular level -how signalling is altered in cancer, and thereby identify novel therapeutic strategies for particular poor prognosis human cancers, as well as biomarkers that aid classification of patients towards optimal treatments.

We're part of the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute, and a member of the Cancer Program and the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.

Our research

The goal of the Signalling Network Laboratory is to identify novel therapeutic targets and biomarkers for particular human cancers, including triple negative breast cancer, prostate, pancreatic and gastric cancer, through detailed characterisation of intracellular signalling events. What sets us apart is that we address signalling at a network level, through an integrated strategy that combines phosphoproteomic profiling of cancer subtypes and global interrogation of the human kinome with functional genomics, computational biology and bioinformatics.

  • Phosphorylation-based signalling networks in cancer

    Integrating mass spectrometry-based proteomics with functional genomics and computational biology to characterise kinase-based signalling networks in triple negative breast cancer and identify improved therapeutic strategies.

  • Intercellular communication in the tumour microenvironment

    The tumour microenvironment (TME) plays a major role in cancer development and progression, and characterisation of intercellular signalling networks in the TME offers novel opportunities for research translation.

  • Network-level interrogation of the PEAK family of pseudokinase scaffolds

    This research area focuses on the PEAK family of oncogenic scaffolds and aims to define the protein interaction networks mediated by different PEAK complexes and their functional roles.
