Personal profile

Biography

Jason is Head of the Developmental and Cancer Biology research group in Hudson Institute's Centre for Cancer Research. A developmental biologist, Jason is driving cutting-edge research to understand the role of critical embryonic signalling pathways and epigenetic mechanisms in normal and abnormal development and disease, including paediatric brain tumours (atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumours, diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma, and medulloblastoma), paediatric connective tissue cancers (sarcomas), and lung cancer.

 

Dr Jason Cain is a developmental biologist involved in full time basic research. After completing his BSc (2000), BSc(Hons) (2001) and PhD (2006) in the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology at Monash University, Jason moved to The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Canada to undertake his post-doctoral training. During his postdoctoral training in the Program of Developmental and Stem Cell Biology under the supervision of Dr Norman Rosenblum (Professor of Paediatrics, Senior Scientist, and Staff Nephrologist at Sickkids), Jason focused on the role of the Hedgehog signalling pathway in normal and abnormal kidney development. In late 2010, Jason returned to Australia to take up a position as a Research Fellow with Prof Neil Watkins (Professor of Cancer and Developmental Biology, NHMRC Senior Research Fellow, and Consultant Physician) at Hudson Institute of Medical Research. In 2014, Jason was appointed Head of the Developmental and Cancer Biology laboratory, continuing his work in developmental biology and paediatric brain and solid cancers.
