Our Board - Linear Clinical Research

Peter Leedman
Director of the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research, Head of the Perkins Laboratory for Cancer Medicine and Professor of Medicine at the University of Western Australia, Peter is our inaugural chairman and has been involved with Linear since its inception. While driving our growth from three staff in 2010 to ~100 in 2017, he has pursued his long-term interest in RNA biology, in particular microRNAs, and how this information can be harnessed for therapeutics in poor prognostic tumors (head and neck, liver and colon cancer). Peter has also co-founded miReven, a spin out company established to commercialise microRNA replacement therapy for cancer.

Gene | abnews24.com:english

UWA Winthrop Professor Peter Leedman, who leads WAIMR's Laboratory for Cancer Medicine, said his research team, headed by UWA Assistant Professor Shane Colley, found that mice without the SLIRP gene - a so-called 'knock-out' gene - had one third fewer offspring than normal mice and produced significantly fewer sperm which could be described as 'good swimmers'.
This discovery may eventually have practical ramifications for couples who are not having any luck conceiving naturally, Leedman said. For example, if our studies in men with infertility demonstrate a key role for SLIRP, then it is feasible that SLIRP testing could help streamline treatment options - eg going more directly to IVF (in vitro fertilisation) treatment rather than continuing to try conceiving without medical intervention for another six to 12 months, Leedman said.
