Presenter: Associate Professor Nigel Waterhouse
Bio: Nigel Waterhouse is a biochemistry graduate from University College Dublin in Ireland, and completed his PhD in Cancer Biology at the Queensland Institute for Medical Research in Brisbane. He then moved to the La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology in San Diego and became interested in using flow cytometry and microscopy to unravel pathways that orchestrate cancer cell death. He continued this work back in Australia at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre to understand how immune killer cells fight cancer. He moved to the Mater Medical Research Institute in Brisbane in 2009 where he focussed on how immunotherapy can influence the outcomes of patients with prostate cancer and leukaemia. He moved back to QIMR Berghofer in 2012 and helped set up the Australian Cancer Research Foundation-Centre for Comprehensive Biomedical Imaging, where researchers have access to the latest microscopy knowledge and technologies to understand cancer and other diseases. He has published over 80 journal articles cited more than 10,000 times.
