Melissa Cantley

Dr Melissa Cantley

NHMRC Early Career Research Fellow

School of Biomedicine

Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences

Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD - email supervisor to discuss availability.


In 2006, Melissa completed a Bachelor of Health Sciences at the University of Adelaide followed by Honours (First Class) in Pathology in 2007. To expand on her knowledge in the area of localized pathological bone loss she worked as an NHMRC funded Research Assistant for two years. During this time Melissa helped establish a number of animal models of pathogenic bone loss, including periodontitis, rheumatoid arthritis and peri-implant osteolysis. Additional to this she optimized quantitative methods to assess bone loss using live micro CT scanning.

Melissa completed her PhD (October 2013) within the Discipline of Anatomy and Pathology, School of Medical Sciences at the University of Adelaide with the support of an Australian Postgraduate Award. Her research was undertaken in the Bone and Joint Laboratory with the supervision of Associate Professor David Haynes and Professor Mark Bartold. The overall aim of her PhD project was to investigate novel treatments of localized bone loss in chronic inflammatory diseases such as periodontitis, rheumatoid arthritis and prosthetic osteolysis.

In 2013 and 2014 Melissa worked as the Research Projects Coordintor, and Learning and Teaching Support Officer in the School of Medical Sciences. Melissa commenced her NHMRC Peter Doherty Early Career Fellowship in June 2014 under the supervision and mentorship of Professor Andrew Zannettino. Dr Cantley is now applying her extensive bone biology knowledge and experience to the area of the haematological malignancy multiple myeloma. She is focussing on understanding bone changes and their role in progression from pre-malignancy to active myeloma.

Understanding the role of the bone microenvironment in the progression of pre-malignancies monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS) and smouldering myeloma to active myeloma and identifying bone biomarkers of those patients at high risk of progression to myeloma.

Up to 80% of patients who have myeloma are affected by myeloma bone disease, which leads to holes in the bone and associated bone pain and risk of fractures. This occurs as a result of complex interactions and communications between the myeloma plasma cells and the cells in their surrounding environment of the bone marrow, referred to as the microenvironment. In almost all cases of multiple myeloma, patients have the presence of a pre-cancerous stage known as monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS) and/or smoldering myeloma (SMM). Some patients with smouldering myeloma have stable disease long-term whilst one quarter of patients will rapidly progress to develop myeloma within 2 years of diagnosis. These pre-cancerous stages are recognized as being symptom free and hence patients are closely monitored but do not receive treatment. The presence of bone lesions is not commonly seen in MGUS and smouldering myeloma patients but some research suggests that there is abnormal bone changes that make a patient more susceptible to bone fractures. My research interests focus around understanding these bone changes in pre-cancerous stages and how they may contribute to the progression of malignant myeloma.
