Hubert Hondermarck, PhD
Professor, School of Biomedical Sciences and Pharmacy, University of Newcastle
A biochemist and expert in cancer cell biology, Dr. Hondermarck is a professor at the School of Biomedical Sciences and Pharmacy at the University of Newcastle in Australia. He received his Ph.D. in neurobiochemistry from the University of Lille in France and completed his postdoctoral research at the University of California, Irvine. He founded a research unit at the French Institute of Health and Medical Research and led that unit for 10 years before he joined the University of Newcastle in 2011. He has published more than 100 articles over his career as a researcher.
Dr. Hondermarck has uncovered the importance of neurotrophic factors secreted by cancer cells that, in turn, attract and recruit neuronal processes to the tumor microenvironment.
