Prof Hofman's research focuses on using nuclear medicine to improve outcomes in men with prostate cancerProfessor Michael Hofman is a nuclear medicine physician at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in Melbourne, Australia's only public hospital dedicated to cancer treatment, research and education. He has a co-appointment at the University of Melbourne and previously completed a fellowship at Guy's & St Thomas' hospital in London.

He has particular interest in novel PET radiotracers, and theranostic applications. This interest began with imaging and therapy for neuroendocrine tumours and has progressed to a focussed interest in prostate cancer. He is the principal investigator of the “proPSMA Study”, a 10-site randomised trial of PSMA PET for staging high risk prostate cancer. He led the first prospective data on Lu-177-PSMA and is chair of the “TheraP Study”, a multi-centre randomised trial of Lu-177-PSMA versus cabazitaxel chemotherapy. He has authored or co-authored over 150 peer-reviewed articles and several book chapters. He is a scientific member of the Australasian Radiopharmaceutical Trials Network (ARTnet), Vice-Chairperson of the Oncology Scientific Program for the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNM) and Board Member of the SNMMI Theranostic Center of Excellence. In these roles, he aims to progress the field through clinical trial development and execution. He is an editor for several international journals including the Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging.
