Dr Douglas Hilton
Cooperative Research Centre for Cellular Growth Factors
Douglas’ work included the discovery of a new family of proteins that act as biochemical brakes to damp down signals induced by cells to multiply and mature, and which are therefore potential targets for drug discovery. With colleagues, he is also heading a project to develop new mouse strains as models for human disease.
Doug is now a Professor at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research.
