Personal profile


Professor Ruth Ganss is the inaugural Woodside Cancer Research Fellow, Head of the Cancer Microenvironment Laboratory at the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research. She obtained her PhD at the University of Heidelberg/Germany in 1994. As a postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Prof. Douglas Hanahan at the University of California, San Francisco, she gained profound knowledge in the analyses of preclinical mouse models with a main focus on tumour stroma. Her laboratory at the German Cancer Research Center in Heidelberg (1997-2006) focused on vascular aspects of tumour immunity. Since 2006, she holds a professorial appointment at the University of Western Australia and conducts research at the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research. She leads a research program that integrates cancer, immunology and vascular biology at the highest competitive level. She has more than 20 years of expertise in studying the tumour microenvironment in transgenic and orthotopic tumour models. Her current research activities focus on translational anti-cancer aspects of stromal remodelling and immunotherapy.
