  • Anderly was born in Taiwan and received his High School and Tertiary Education in New Zealand and Australia respectively. He was the Year 12 DUX of Long Bay College (Auckland, New Zealand) in 1999 and graduated as the top-achieving student within the Department of Paediatrics in the Faculty of Medicine (Dean’s Honours List) at the University of Melbourne in 2003. His formal research training was first provided by apoptosis pioneers and BCL-2 discoverers Professors David L. Vaux (AO, FAA) and David CS Huang at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research (Melbourne, Australia), where he studied the structure and functions of BCL-2 family proteins in cell death regulation, as supported by two independent undergraduate scholarships from the Anti Cancer Council of Victoria (ACCV) and the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP). Upon completion of his B. BiomedSc degree (Biochemistry and Molecular Biology) at the University of Melbourne, he pursued a research-only Honours degree and subsequently PhD study in Human Genetics through the Department of Paediatrics, University of Melbourne (2004-2008). His Honours and PhD research work was performed in the laboratory of internationally renown chromosome biologist Professor KH Andy Choo (FAA) at the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute based at the Royal Children’s Hospital (Melbourne, Australia), where he studied the epigenetic regulation of centromere structure and functions. He was awarded an Honours prize from the Human Genetics Society of Australasia (HGSA) and a full APA PhD scholarship from the Commonwealth Government of Australia for his research in Chromosome Biology. Upon completion of his PhD, Anderly moved to the Ludwig Institute of Cancer Research to pursue postdoctoral studies in colorectal cancer translational biologist Professor John Mariadason’s laboratory where he identified a novel clinically-relevant transcriptional axis by which HDACi induce apoptosis in tumour cells from multiple tu
