Dr Wallington-Beddoe is a NHMRC Research Fellow at the Centre for Cancer Biology, University of South Australia, Senior Lecturer at Flinders University and a Consultant Clinical Haematologist at Flinders Medical Centre. After completing specialist medical qualifications (FRACP/FRCPA) in the discipline of haematology at Westmead Hospital, Sydney, in 2009, Dr Wallington-Beddoe undertook PhD studies at The University of Sydney from 2010 to 2012. His work sought to investigate novel therapeutic strategies for acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) and resulted in several high impact publications and numerous national and international high profile conference presentations. In recognition of this work, Dr Wallington-Beddoe was awarded the 2012 Haematology Society of Australia and New Zealand Albert Baikie Memorial Medal and New Investigator Grant. He relocated to Adelaide in 2013 to undertake post-doctoral research, investigating how certain lipids can be targeted in myeloma to enhance current therapies, and was shortly thereafter awarded an Australian Government NHMRC Peter Doherty Research Fellowship and also a Mary Overton Royal Adelaide Hospital Research Fellowship. He plans to continue an active research role in myeloma through his University affiliations and recent hospital appointment at Flinders Medical Centre. Being a basic science researcher and clinical haematologist, Dr Wallington-Beddoe links and translates basic research to the clinic. Together with his pivotal role in directing haematology clinical trials, patients receive integrated and comprehensive care for their condition in a supportive and caring environment.
