Harvey Laboratory

Organogenesis and Cancer Laboratory

Welcome to the Harvey Lab

Our lab studies the role of the Hippo pathway in the control of organ size and cancer.

We're part of the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute, and a member of the Development & Stem Cells and Cancer Programs 
and the Department of Anatomy and Developmental Biology.

Our research

We use the powerful model organism Drosophila to discover new Hippo pathway genes and investigate how this pathway controls organ size, using advanced microscopic techniques, genetics and transcriptomics. We also investigate the role of the Hippo pathway in human cancer, using cell lines, patient samples and animal models. We have a specific interest in two cancers: melanoma and mesothelioma.
