Prof Philip Hogg graduated with a PhD in biochemistry from the University of Queensland in 1987. Following post-doctoral training in the USA and Sweden he returned to UNSW as a NHMRC RD Wright Fellow. He is now a NHMRC Senior Principal Research Fellow and was the inaugural director of the Lowy Cancer Research Centre at UNSW. He has won several national and international awards for his research, which focuses on a fundamental chemical modification of proteins he discovered. This research has led to a potential new cancer diagnostic and a therapeutic that are in clinical testing.
