Co-Directors: Professor Gail Risbridger and Associate Professor Renea Taylor

Welcome to the Prostate Cancer Research Group Lab

Jointly led by Professor Gail Risbridger and Associate Professor Renea Taylor and working as a multidisciplinary team, our group aims to improve patient treatment and outcome through a better understanding of the mechanisms that drive prostate cancer.

We're both part of the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute, and members of the Cancer and Development & Stem Cells Programs.

Professor Gail Risbridger is a member of the Department of Anatomy & Developmental Biology, and Associate Professor Renea Taylor is a member of the Department of Physiology, and also a member of the Metabolism, Diabetes and Obesity Program.

Our research

Prostate cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer in men. In Australia, about 60 men die from prostate cancer each week.

Our research vision is that the excellence and innovation in our biomedical and translational research will inform and guide genitourinary oncology practice, including clinical trials, for patient benefit.

  • Developing new preclinical models of prostate cancer

  • Preclinical testing of new treatments for prostate cancer

  • Working in multidisciplinary consortia to exchange materials and ideas
