Maree C Faux

Dr Maree Faux is cancer cell biologist and protein biochemist with a long standing interest in understanding how protein-protein interactions regulate the activity and location of intracellular signaling proteins. She received her PhD from the University of Melbourne, training as a protein biochemist under Professor Bruce Kemp at St Vincent’s Institute of Medical research. She completed postdoctoral training with Professor John Scott at the Vollum Institute, OR, USA, investigating the role of protein-protein interactions in the coordination of the activity and location of protein kinases and phosphatases. Dr Faux joined Professor Tony Burgess’s team at the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research to study the biochemistry and biology of the tumour suppressor APC and wnt signalling in colon cells. She was awarded the NH&MRC Howard Florey Centenary and RD Wright Research Fellowships and the Victorian Young Tall Poppy Award. Dr Faux recently moved with Professor Burgess to the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research where she continues to work on understanding the effects of APC truncation in colon cancer.
