Dr Darren Saunders is a cancer biologist, science communicator and Senior Lecturer in Medicine at the University of NSW in Sydney.

Dr Saunders was a founding member and deputy chair of the Australian Academy of Science Early-Mid Career Researcher Forum, received an Australian Leadership Award and NSW Life Scientist Research Award, and has held fellowships from the US Dept. of Defense and Cancer Institute NSW.

Darren’s research is focused on proteostasis and metabolic reprogramming in cancer and neurodegeneration, and developing creative technology-based approaches to visualizing and communicating complex data. His work integrates various platforms to better understand genotype-phenotype relationships including proteomics, genomics, and metabolomics, and he has developed novel platforms for exploring interactome diversity in cell signaling.

He has published over 40 research papers and is often invited to present his research at conferences in Europe and North America
