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.

SKMRC - 2010.10.06 Garden Party Prompts Green Thumb Sun Safety Message, 6 Oct 2010 [cached]
The Scott Kirkbride Melanoma Research Centre's (SKMRC) scientific director Professor Peter Leedman said the Garden Party to raise money for the Centre provided an ideal time to remind people to cover up while gardening.
"Australian statistics reveal that almost 14 percent of adults are sunburnt on summer weekends and for many people*, it happens while they're doing outside chores or hobbies like gardening," he said.
"Of course for people like landscape gardeners, the risk is higher, but with melanoma rates on the rise, it's critical that even home gardeners cover up and use sunscreen while working in the sun."
Professor Leedman said other outdoor activities such as simply enjoying a barbecue with friends could also pose a risk.
"Most of us have been surprised at one time or another to realise we've got too much sun while doing everyday things like driving, shopping outdoors or sightseeing and so building sun safety into common activities is critical," he said.
