Dr Irene Zinonos
Postdoctoral Researcher - Breast Cancer Research Unit.
Irene studied Biology at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece and in 2007 completed her Honours degree in the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Adelaide. She then went on to complete her PhD in the Discipline of Surgery at The University of Adelaide, while based at the Basil Hetzel Institute. Irene is currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Breast Cancer Research Unit at the BHI.
Irene’s research interests focus on identifying therapies that will be effective against metastatic breast cancer in the bone. Her main focus in the lab is to evaluate the efficacy of such novel anticancer therapeutics using the BCRUs well established animal models and expertise in animal imaging.
