Dr Ellem obtained his PhD in 2006 from Monash University and currently works within the Department of Anatomy and Developmental Biology at Monash University, Australia.

His research program examines oestrogen synthesis and action in the prostate, particularly the opposing roles of the oestrogen receptors (ERa and ERb) and the emerging link between aberrant oestrogen exposure, inflammation, and prostate cancer.

His work is underpinned by transgenic mouse models and complemented by human clinical tissues and in vitro cell studies.
