Professor Jane Visvader
Walter and Eliza Hall Institute for Medical Research Jane Visvader is Joint Head of the Division of Stem Cells and Cancer and the Breast Cancer Laboratory at The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research. She carried out PhD studies in the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Adelaide, and held subsequent positions as a postdoctoral fellow at the Salk Institute, San Diego, and Research Associate and Instructor at the Children's Hospital/Harvard Medical School, Boston. In 1998, she was appointed to the Victorian Breast Cancer Research Consortium as a group leader in the area of mammary gland development and cancer. Her laboratory focuses on understanding the epithelial hierarchy in normal and cancerous breast tissue, as well as identifying genes important for regulating mammary development.

ASBMB Lemberg Medallist: Jane Visvader
Professor Jane Visvader is joint head of the Division of Stem Cells and Cancer at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute. She obtained her PhD in molecular biology under the late molecular virologist Robert Symons in the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Adelaide. She then carried out postdoctoral work at the Salk Institute with Professor Inder Verma, and at WEHI with Professor Jerry Adams. Her contributions to defining regulators of haematopoiesis were recognised by appointment as a Faculty member at WEHI in 1993. This was followed by an appointment as a Harvard Medical School Instructor in Boston, where she continued to study molecular regulators in the blood compartment with Professor Stuart Orkin. In 1998, Jane was recruited to Victoria by the prestigious Victorian Breast Cancer Research Consortium (VBCRC) to establish a Breast Cancer Laboratory at WEHI jointly with Professor Geoff Lindeman. Over the past decade, Jane and her team have made important contributions to the mammary biology and breast cancer fields by isolating mammary stem cells, defining master regulators of mammary gland development and identifying genetic lesions that drive oncogenesis. In 2006, Jane and colleagues published a milestone study in Nature describing the successful isolation of the long-sought mouse mammary stem cell. In other work, it was revealed that breast stem cells are highly responsive to steroid hormone signalling, despite lacking hormone receptors, thus explaining the long-established epidemiological link between hormone exposure and breast cancer. Several master regulators that orchestrate cell fate decisions in the mammary gland have also been defined, providing an indispensable framework for understanding mammary lineage commitment and differentiation. Jane and colleagues subsequently proved the existence of an analogous hierarchy in human breast and derived unique gene signatures for the different subpopulations.

The 2015 Clifford Prize was awarded jointly to Inder Verma of the Salk Institute and Jane Visvader of WEHI.
Jane combined genetic lineage tracing techniques with beautifully 3D-reconstructed confocal images to define the origins of pre-neoplastic breast cancer cells.
