Personal profile

Public Profile

Professor Timothy Hughes is the Precision Medicine Theme Leader at SAHMRI and Consultant Haematologist in the Division of Haematology at SA Pathology. He is also the Cancer Council Chair in Cancer Research, Chair of the International Chronic Myeloid Leukemia Foundation (iCMLf) and Fellow of the Australian Academy of Health and Medical Sciences (AAHMS).

Professor Hughes is an international expert in the biology and treatment of leukaemia. He led the establishment of the molecular response criteria that are used world-wide to measure response in chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) and has led many of the key Global and National trials. His group has successfully developed predictive bioassays and molecular targets that influence the way CML patients are managed world-wide. He has published over 250 papers that have been cited over 40,000 times. 

In October 2017 Professor Hughes was awarded the GSK Award for Research Excellence 2017 for pioneering the use of tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs).
