Pleural Medicine Group

PHD Opportunities in Respiratory Infection and Cancer Research
The Pleural Medicine Group offers two PhD projects for commencement in 2017. Potential candidates have the opportunity to undertake a full-time PhD program in an internationally renowned pleural diseases research group, led by Prof Gary Lee.
Our translational research program uniquely combines clinical and laboratory research with access to clinical trials, state-of-the-art imaging facilities, animal models and pleural biobank.
PHD RESEARCH TOPICS
RESPIRATORY INFECTION
Empyema is a global problem with a high morbidity and mortality. More than 1 million patients are admitted to hospital with pneumonia each year in the US, and 40% develop a pleural effusion. Successful treatment depends critically on antibiotic therapy and evacuation of infected pleural fluid. Knowledge of bacteriology of empyema for guided antibiotic therapy is still lacking. The project will explore animal models for empyema and the mechanisms of fluid accumulation.
MESOTHELIOMA
Australia has the world’s highest incidence of malignant mesothelioma. There is no cure at present for mesothelioma, and the median survival is only nine months. Bacterial toxins have been shown to enhance local immunity and kill cancer cells. The project will explore novel targets and new potential therapies for mesothelioma to decrease tumour burden.
Primary Supervisor: Professor YC Gary Lee
Location: Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research, QEII Medical Centre, Western Australia, Pleural Medicine Group, Institute for Respiratory Health
