DR Kylie Gorringe


  • Breast and ovarian cancer genetics (genomics)



  • Dr. Gorringe has a BSc and MSc from the University of Auckland, NZ, in Human Genetics and obtained her PhD from the Department of Oncology, University of Cambridge, UK in Cancer Genetics. She then undertook post-doctoral research positions at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, Melbourne, and James Cook University, Townsville, before returning to the PeterMac for a research fellowship in the Cancer Genetics Research Laboratory. Dr. Gorringe is a senior post-doctoral fellow who has a program of research based on the application of genomics to clinical questions in breast and gynaecological cancers. She has particular interests in the genomic characterisation of mucinous ovarian cancer (GAMuT study, NHMRC APP1045783), functional evaluation of chromosome amplifications in high grade serous ovarian carcinoma, and the genetics of breast cancer precursors such as DCIS and ADH (NHMRC APP1063092). She has expertise in the analysis of copy number and DNA sequencing data.
