Professor Melissa Little
Professor Melissa Little is an NHMRC Principal Research Fellow at the Institute for Molecular Bioscience, University of Queensland. She leads the IMB Kidney Research Laboratory where her research interests are in the molecular genetics of kidney development and the causes of renal disease with the aim of developing stem cell technology for use in kidney regeneration. She has been a pioneer in cross-disciplinary research between molecular development, experimental nephrology and stem cell biology.
Professor Little has continuously held competitive fellowships for more than 20 years, including Royal Society Endeavour, RD Wright, Sylvia and Charles Viertel and Eisenhower Fellowships.
...
Throughout her career, Professor Little's achievements have been recognised as the recipient of awards such as the GlaxoSmithKline Award for Research Excellence (2005) the Australian Academy of Sciences Gottschalk Medal in Medical Sciences (2004) and a prestigious Eisenhower Fellowship, which recognises her contribution to both the commercial and academic sectors. Her contributions to Australian science have included membership of the Wills Review, the development of national research priorities for the Australian Government and she is currently a member of the McKeon Strategic Research of Health and Medical Research.
Professor Little has a long history in the field of kidney developmental biology, having associated mutations in the WT1 gene with Denys Drash syndrome and sporadic Wilms' tumour, and is a pioneer in the field of renal stem cell biology and renal regeneration. She has published 90 scientific journal articles including publications in high impact journals such as Science, Nature, Nature Genetics, Cell Stem Cell and Cell Developmental Cell, PNAS, Journal of Biological Chemistry, Journal of the American Society of Nephrology, Human Molecular Genetics and Oncogene. She has also published over 30 reviews/book chapters, has been cited in excess of 3500 times and has an h index of 35.
Within the Stem Cells Australia initiative, Professor Little leads research aimed at the differentiation of hESC to nephron progenitors. As a member of the NIH-funded GenitoUrinary Development Molecular Anatomy Project (GUDMAP), her laboratory contributed extensive data on gene expression patterns in the developing and adult kidney, lower urinary tract and reproductive systems. Currently, she has research support from the NHMRC, ARC, HFSP and NIH and is a member of the EU Stellar consortium on renal stem cells.
