Dr Louise Winteringham coordinates the Translational Cancer Research Program at The Perkins. She has an extensive background in immunology and haematology focusing on the molecular and cellular biology of cancer, in particular haematological cancers. She began her research career in the in the Department of Clinical Immunology at Royal Perth Hospital where she completed her MSc investigating the impact of non-coding regions within the Major Histocompatibility Complex. Following this, she moved to London where she spent three years at St Bartholomew's Hospital. Louise was awarded the Richard Walter Gibbon Fellowship from the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences at UWA to undertake her PhD so she returned to Perth where she joined the Leukemia Laboratory at WAIMR, headed by Professor Peter Klinken. Louise has more than twenty five years experience in cancer research including the identification of several novel genes associated with the development and progression of cancer.

Dr Winteringham was a committee member of the Australasian Society for Stem Cell Research for a number of years and is actively engaged with the Leukemia Foundation WA. She has been invited by the Leukemia Foundation to speak at several educational events and patient conferences. Louise also runs the NCRIS WA node of the Australian Phenomics Network RNAi capability. This provides WA scientists with access to state of the art technology required to carry out large scale RNAi functional screens.
