Professor Suresh Mathivanan undertook a PhD in proteomics and bioinformatics at the Institute of Bioinformatics, India and Johns Hopkins University, USA. After PhD, Suresh joined Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research, Melbourne, Australia as a postdoctoral researcher. In 2011, he received a NH&MRC Peter Doherty fellowship to study extracellular vesicles secreted by cancer cells. Suresh moved to the Department of Biochemistry, La Trobe Institute for Molecular Science (LIMS) at La Trobe University after receiving a LIMS fellowship to set up his own research group in 2011. At LIMS, Mathivanan's laboratory is focused on extracellular vesicles, their role in cancer and intercellular communication. He has authored over 118 articles that are cited more than 35600 times (Google Scholar). He has been listed as a 'Highly Cited Researcher' by Web of Science for the last five years in 2018-2022. His lab has contributed key studies in biochemical characterization of EVs as well as the bioinformatics capability (ExoCarta, Vesiclepedia and FunRich).
