    Professor Sean Grimmond

Professor Sean Grimmond directs the University of Melbourne Centre for Cancer Research, heads the Department of Clinical Pathology and is the Bertalli Chair in Cancer Medicine. Professor Grimmond holds a Genetics PhD (UQ), is a Scientific Fellow (RCPA) and a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Health and Medical Sciences. Professor Grimmond pioneered patient genome & transcriptome almost a decade ago and led Australia’s International Cancer Genome Consortium efforts, which identified the mutagenic processes, driver mutations, and therapeutic vulnerabilities of many high-mortality malignancies. Since returning to Australia, he has focused on tackling cancers of unmet need by establishing the VCCC’s precision oncology program, ex-vivo drug screening and cancer genome discovery.
