I am a registered medical laboratory scientist committed to the field of medical research with the aim of improving standards of diagnostic cancer medicine. I am currently a PhD student (last semester) in School of Bio Medical sciences, Faculty of Health, Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia. My current research activity reflects an interdisciplinary perspective on understanding the genetic complexity, identifying novel biomarkers and therapeutic targets for prostate cancer, the most common cancer in Australian men.
