Junior Clinical Research Fellow

I am a medical oncologist working at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. Part of my research involves collecting real world data from breast cancer patients to personalise patient care. I am also looking for ways to improve outcomes in patients with advanced breast cancer and to prevent breast cancer developing in high risk women.

Research interest

My research interests are primarily in early-phase translational clinical trials to develop targeted treatment for patients with metastatic breast cancer. I lead a number of breast cancer registries, and am using data from these registries to inform clinical practice.

I am also involved in drug prevention clinical trials for women who harbour a BRCA gene mutation and others at high risk of developing breast cancer.

Three researchers in the laboratory

Our researchers have discovered that an existing medication could have promise in preventing breast cancer in women carrying a faulty BRCA1 gene.
