Personal profile

Public Profile

Currently my primary role is as a Senoir Project Manager for Adelaide BioMed City (ABMC) where along with the General Manager, we work to initiate, facilitate and maintain collaborative projects across Adelaide's Biomedical precinct, that encompasses SAHMRI, The Royal Adelaide Hospital, The University of Adelaide, University of South Australia and Flinders University.  Our projects are many and varied, including such areas as state wide genomics and proteomics facilities, streamlining research innovation and commercialisation across the precinct, and mapping Adelaide's biomedical capabilities for better engagement of all stakeholders locally, nationally and internationally.

I am also the current Precision Medicine Theme Research Manager where I am integrally involved in the reporting of research projects to government and private funding bodies. As part of this role I also aid in grant applications and coordinate collaborations between our scientists and other medical research colleagues and commercial partners. 

Previously I worked as a team leading post-doctoral researcher within the group, where my focus was on the long term drug free survival of CML patients successfully treated with tyrosine kinase therapy. While many patients are cured of their disease (where cure is no detectable leukaemia) whilst on therapy, 70% of these patients will have a rapid relapse of disease when therapy is ceased. The over-reaching aim of this study is to determine what factors affect a patient’s ability to achieve treatment free remission (TFR; no detectable leukaemia when off therapy). Maximising a patient’s ability to achieve TFR, by understanding their basic biology, will allow for more patients to cease therapy and therefore improve their long-term quality of life and clinical outcome.
