Personal profile


Associate Professor Cecilia Prêle is a Principal Research Fellow within the School of Biomedical Sciences at the University of Western Australia. She was awarded her PhD in Biochemistry from University College London, UK in 2001. After completing a short postdoctoral position at Guy’s, St Thomas’ and Kings College London she relocated to Perth. Her research focuses on investigating signal transduction pathways activated in disease and on how these modified pathways contribute to the initiation and progression of disease. Her research is part of a larger collaborative program of research, which aims to investigate the mechanisms driving lung tissue repair and regeneration.
