Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD - email supervisor to discuss availability.


Joanne completed her PhD in 2007 at the University of Sydney. She began her postdoctoral training at the Heart Research Institute where she explored the vascular protective effects of high-density lipoproteins. Joanne joined the SAHMRI in January 2017 where she leads the miRNAs and Diabetes research programs in the Heart Health Theme. Her current research interests include exploring novel therapeutic targets that will alleviate vascular complications associated with diabetes.

Joanne Tan is a Senior Research Fellow at the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute where she leads the miRNAs and Diabetes research programs in the Heart Health Theme. She is also an Affiliate Senior Lecturer at The University of Adelaide. Dr. Tan is a vascular biologist with interests and expertise in angiogenesis and diabetes-impaired cellular mechanisms. She completed her PhD at The University of Sydney where she looked at the role of adipocyte differentiation in the development of metabolic syndrome. She then began her postdoctoral training at the Heart Research Institute where she explored the vasculoprotective effects of high-density lipoproteins (HDL), with a particular focus on the role of HDL in angiogenesis-associated diseases. Her current research interests include exploring novel therapeutic targets that will alleviate vascular complications associated with diabetes.
