Bruce Stone Fellow in Chemical Biology

Dr David Greening

Dr David Greening is the Bruce Stone Fellow in Chemical Biology.

Dr Greening completed his PhD at The University of Melbourne, focusing on quantitative proteomics and understanding the cancer secretome – specifically tumour-derived peptides and their function. He was a postdoctoral fellow at the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research and received further training in quantitative proteomics at the Institute for Systems Biology (USA), before moving to LIMS in 2011.

Dr Greening has 53 publications (23 first author, 19 corresponding/senior author, >2400 citations). He has discovered novel methods for production, isolation, and purification of extracellular vesicles (exosomes), which are regarded as standard practice in extracellular biology and cell communication. He has investigated the functional characterisation of the cancer secretome, defining mechanisms promoting tumorigenesis, and regulating angiogenesis.

Dr Greening’s work also encompasses uterine biology, and has important implications for research into novel interventions designed to reduce infertility and establish a successful pregnancy.
