Kaylene Simpson

 

Associate Professor Kaylene Simpson Heads the Victorian Centre for Functional Genomics (VCFG) at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. The VCFG enables researchers Australia-wide to perform high throughput target discovery using gene targeting approaches such as CRISPR/cas9 and RNA interference and broad scale compound screening in both 2D and 3D settings.

These platforms are underpinned by sophisticated cell phenotyping strategies using high content imaging. She also heads a quantitative proteomics platform utilising Reverse Phase Protein Array technology. She leads a highly experienced team who actively engage with researchers to help drive their research projects to fruition.
Associate Professor Simpson is a molecular cell biologist who specialized in breast cancer invasion and metastasis while a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard Medical School. She has a wealth of experience in assay development, data interpretation and analysis and overall guidance in the area of functional genomics and contributes intellectually to all projects and technology initiatives within the institute.
A/Prof Simpson has initiated and coordinated an annual national conference on Functional High Throughput Technologies since 2010. She is a founding member and past President of the Society of Biomolecular Imaging and Informatics (SBI2). She is currently Senior Editor for Scientific DATA.
