Grant Dewson-Lab team


Each member of our lab has their own research focus within the broader context of understanding the fundamental processes of apoptosis and mitochondrial quality control (mitophagy) and how these processes influence disease.
We collaborate widely within the Institute and also with external labs. Research positions are available for both PhD and Honours students with a passion for biological research and an interest in cancer biology.
