Personal profile

Public Profile

My role as Laboratory Manager is to oversee the operations of the Precision Medicine Theme Level 5 North PC2 Laboratory to ensure it is a functional and harmonious working environment for all of the researchers. As a Clinical Research Scientist with the Leukaemia Research Group, I process haematopoietic samples collected on various CML and ALL clinical study protocols. I perform Correlative Science Studies for trials, data entry and analysis, and result verification. I manage our extensive CML and ALL ultracold and cryogenic collections of clinical specimens for research. I am involved with a number of research projects (namely Treatment-free Remission in CML) and provide technical assistance to our post-doctoral researchers and contribute to manuscripts for scientific publication.
