Professor Jeffrey Holst

I am a fundamental and translational cancer researcher developing new ways to profile and target metabolic pathways in melanoma, glioblastoma, breast and prostate cancer. My research has focussed primarily on the role of uptake and metabolism of amino acids by cancer cells and how these integrate and cooperate with glucose metabolism to drive cell growth. My lab has developed a range of novel methods for exploring these metabolic processes in cancer, including 3D explant models for analysis of metabolism (metabolomics) and therapeutic development.

I am Director of Engagement and Industry Partnerships in the School of Biomedical Sciences at UNSW, and Director of the Adult Cancer Program.
