Dr Suresh Mathivanan

Suresh Mathivanan undertook a PhD in proteomics and bioinformatics at the Institute of Bioinformatics, India and Johns Hopkins University, USA. After PhD, Suresh joined Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research, Melbourne, Australia as a postdoctoral researcher. In 2011, he received a NH&MRC Peter Doherty fellowship to study exosomes secreted by cancer cells. Further to this, in 2015, he received an ARC DECRA to study the role of exosomes in intercellular communication. Suresh is currently a laboratory head in Department of Biochemistry and Genetics, La Trobe Institute for Molecular Science (LIMS) at La Trobe University. At LIMS, Mathivanan's laboratory is focused on biogenesis of exosomes, their role in cancer and intercellular communication. His group developed and maintains EV databases/tools such as ExoCarta, Vesiclepedia and FunRich.
