Personal profile

Public Profile

Associate Professor Agnes Yong completed undergraduate and post-graduate medical training in the UK. She continued subspecialty training in haematology and haematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) at the Hammersmith Hospital, London. Following her PhD on the molecular heterogeneity of chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML), she was a post-doctoral fellow at the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute at the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland. She was involved in studies characterising immune responses to tumour-associated antigens WT1, proteinase 3, PRAME and BMI-1, and co-investigator on clinical trials of peptide vaccine therapy in leukaemia. Her research interests include CML, mechanisms of inherent leukaemia immunogenicity and studies to enhance anti-leukaemia immune responses whether in the setting of an allogeneic HCT with the graft-versus-leukaemia effect, or in an autologous setting against tumour-associated antigens. She is interested in furthering cellular and immunotherapy for treatment of haematological malignancies, and is involved in ongoing clinical and laboratory studies on CML, multiple myeloma, graft-versus-leukaemia, and adoptive T cell therapy in Adelaide. Her research group’s funding sources include grants from the Leukaemia Foundation, Beat Cancer Hospital Research Package/Cancer Council SA and NH&MRC.
