Tissue Bank Technician
As a technician in the Vyas group since 2011, I process and store the samples we receive from hospitals nationwide. Primarily blood and bone marrow from patients with blood disorders focusing on Acute Myeloid Leukaemia. I am trained in Good Clinical Lab Practice and participate in the clinical trial research which is carried out in the lab.
My work contributes to a valuable resource enabling our group and others to utilise patient samples for progressive research in order to improve survival rates.
Prior to joining the Vyas lab, I was working in the Oncology Department as a research assistant with Prof. Stephan Feller at the Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine and have also been a technician at the Churchill Hospital with Prof. Adrian Harris.
