Personal profile

Public Profile

Currently I am working as the 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.
