Enabling men to live longer, healthier and happier lives.
Professor Wayne Tilley is a founding member of the Freemasons Foundation Centre for Men’s Health (FFCMH) which brings together a multi-disciplinary team of scientists and clinicians working in men’s health to more effectively address the burden of disease in men.
Professor Wayne Tilley and Associate Professor Lisa Butler are members of the Centre's management group. The group is responsible for the Centre's overall strategic direction and management. The group meets regularly to determine the direction of the Centre and discuss the progress and outcomes of the various research programmes supported by the FFCMH. These programs significantly contribute to the current and future wellbeing of all men.
Professor Wayne Tilley, Associate Professor Lisa Butler and Dr Luke Selth are carrying out research into prostate cancer a significant disease effecting men across all levels of society. This research program aims to better understand how the androgen receptor protein controls the growth of prostate cancer cells and to specifically target this protein to inhibit the growth of prostate cancer cells while minimising undesirable side effects such as bone loss, impotence, and impaired cognitive function.View Centre Website
