Professor Peter Leedman completed medicine at the University of Western Australia (UWA), then trained in endocrinology at Royal Melbourne Hospital in the mid-1980s. He completed his PhD at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute in Melbourne with Len Harrison on autoimmune thyroid disease from 1987-1991. From 1991-1994 he was a Lucille P Markey Fellow with Bill Chin, a Howard Hughes Investigator in the Division of Genetics, Brigham and Women's hospital, Harvard Medical School in Boston where he worked on the molecular mechanisms of thyroid hormone action.
He returned to Perth in 1994 as a Senior Lecturer in Medicine at UWA and became a Professor in 2003. Professor Leedman is Head of the Laboratory for Cancer Medicine and Deputy Director of WAIMR. He is also an endocrinologist and Director of Research at Royal Perth Hospital.
He has had a long-term interest in understanding how hormones act at the molecular level, with a focus on RNA biology and interactions between RNA and proteins, and how this information can be harnessed to personalise cancer therapy. His laboratory has focused on the mechanisms regulating expression of key therapeutic targets in hormone-dependent cancers (breast and prostate cancer) and more recently in poor prognostic tumors, including head and neck cancer and colon cancer. His team has identified key functional roles for a number of miRNAs in these tumors and uncovered several new membersof a complex network of RNA-binding nuclear receptor hormone coregulators. His laboratory is focused on applying advances in understanding these molecular mechanisms to the development of novel therapeutics.

"One in three women Western Australian women will be diagnosed with some form of cancer before the age of 85 and on average 4 women die from it each day. At The Harry Perkins Institute, our aim is to improve the health of the community we serve across the state, nation and globe. Funds raised through our first annual Weekend to End Women's Cancers have enabled the advancement of of breakthrough and life-saving cancer research programs specifically in the areas of breast and ovarian cancers, led by our world-leading scientists and researchers right here in Western Australia," Professor Leedman added.
