School of Medical Sciences

I am a group leader at the School of Medical Sciences and a visiting group leader at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research. My research program uses state-of-the-art technology in the field of "single cell omics" to tackle hard-to-crack problems of cancer treatment. My focus is pancreatic cancer and other solid tumours. The main goal of the lab is to tailor treatment for each patient.
