About

Associate Professor

The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research

The Davis Laboratory studies the regulatory networks that control the behaviour of cells in normal and cancerous tissues. We approach these questions with a suite of computational techniques that include classical bioinformatics methods, knowledge-based modelling, machine learning, and network analysis.

Our current focus is understanding the signalling and regulatory networks that underpin epithelial-mesenchymal transitions in breast cancer. Our work in this space is part of the EMPathy Breast Cancer Network, and is funded by the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
