Anderly Chueh

 

Dr Chüeh is a Senior Research Officer in the Personalised Oncology Division at The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research (WEHI). His research employs advance technologies and genetically modified or cancer cell line models to a) study key molecular mechanisms in mitotic signaling, b) investigate the mode of actions of epigenetic enzyme-targeting small molecules, c) discover novel cancer biomarkers predictive of therapeutic response, and d) develop innovative therapeutics in blocking cancer progression.

Dr Chüeh completed his B.BiomedSc Honours in 2003 and obtained his Ph.D. in Human Genetics from The University of Melbourne in 2008 under the supervision of Prof Kong-Hong Andy Choo. He independently constructed and developed an in-house 2-colour genomic tiling PCR-fragment microarray for comparative genomic hybridization (CGH) and chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) applications, in which the technology was successfully transferred to Victorian Clinical Genetics Services for routine molecular diagnosis of chromosomal aberrations in human patients. For his contributions to human genetics as an early career graduate researcher, he was awarded the Honours Soiree Prize from the Human Genetics Society of Australasia. From 2008 until 2013, he completed postdoctoral training at Ludwig Institute of Cancer Research (LICR) under the mentorship of Prof John M. Mariadason, during which time he identified a novel clinically-relevant transcriptional axis that is predictive of HDAC inhibitor drug sensitivity in tumour cells from multiple cancer types. Dr Chüeh was recruited to The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute in 2014 where led target identification and MoA studies on first-in-class small molecule antimitotics that has demonstrated in vivo activities and licensed to commercial partners for co-development. Since 2016, Dr Chüeh has worked as a Senior Scientist contributing to high throughput screening, biomarker identification and target validation to multiple drug discovery pipelines in a leading Australian biotech company (Cancer Therapeutics CRC) that has successfully licensed novel small molecules to multinational pharmaceutical companies such as Merck and Pfizer. Dr Chüeh is also an Associate Editor for UK Biochemical Society’s Biosciences Reports journal and has reviewed more than 40 project and development grants for NHMRC and ARC.
