Suresh Mathivanan undertook a PhD in proteomics and bioinformatics at the Institute of Bioinformatics, India and Johns Hopkins University, USA. After his PhD, Suresh joined Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research, Parkville as a postdoctoral researcher. He held a NHMRC Peter Doherty fellowship until 2014 and currently holds an ARC DECRA. Suresh moved to the Department of Biochemistry, La Trobe Institute for Molecular Science (LIMS) at La Trobe University after receiving a LIMS fellowship to set up his own research group in 2011. At LIMS, Mathivanan's laboratory is focused on exosomes, their role in cancer and intercellular communication. Suresh has hands on expertise in bioinformatics and biochemical techniques hence possessing cross disciplinary skills. He has more than 10 years of research expertise in exosomes, protein biochemistry, proteomics, bioinformatics and cancer. He has won multiple awards including the Victoria Tall Poppy, ASBMB The Eppendorf Edman Award, ASBMB The Bioplatforms Australia Award, Young Investigator Award (Australian Proteomics Society) and Scopus Young Researcher Award.
