Personal profile


Dr Mitchell Lawrence is a Research Fellow in the Department of Anatomy and Developmental Biology and Biomedicine Discovery Institute, Monash University. He graduated with a PhD from Queensland University of Technology in 2009 before joining the Prostate Cancer Research Group at Monash University. His expertise includes the use of patient-derived xenografts of prostate cancer as preclinical models for studying tumour biology and testing novel therapies. His research also focusses on the tumour microenvironment of prostate cancer, particularly the features of cancer-associated fibroblasts. For these multidisciplinary studies, Dr Lawrence works with a diverse team of collaborators, including urologists, oncologists, pathologists, bioinformaticians and patient advocates.

Dr Lawrence is the recipient of funding from the National Health and Medical Research Council (Early Career Fellowship, project grants), the Victorian Government through the Victorian Cancer Agency (Early Career Seed Grant, Mid-Career Fellowship), the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (Movember Young Investigator Grant) and several philanthropic organisations.
