Brooke Pereira completed her PhD at Monash University within the Biomedicine Discovery Institute (BDI) under the supervision of Professor Gail Risbridger in late 2018. During her candidature she studied tumour-stroma interactions in localised prostate cancer using tissue engineering and quantitative mass spectrometry (MS)-based proteomics. Brooke is now a post-doctoral Research Officer at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research, where she is investigating novel stromal targets in pancreatic cancer under the supervision of Associate Professor Paul Timpson. She is using a range of cutting-edge techniques such as patient-derived xenografting (PDX), LC-MS/MS, MALDI imaging and advanced microscopy to study the stroma of both murine and human pancreatic tumours.
