Adelaide Medical School

Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences

I am undertaking a clinically-focused, post-graduate research degree with the Adelaide Medical School at the University of Adelaide. My thesis, provisionally titled "Immunophenotyping of Spinal Cord Injured Patients – Advancing Diagnostics and Prognostics", will be delivered in 2025.

The goal of my research program is to gain further insight into new, potential methods for the treatment, diagnosis and prognosis of spinal cord injury. If my work is successful, the next step will be to develop the potential clinical applications of these methods. Ultimately, if this vision is realised, the impact of my work will lead to additional treatment options as well as novel and improved tools for diagnostic, prognostic and research use in spinal cord injury.

This research program will utilise and expand upon my experience and skill set developed over the last 15 years where I have fulfilled a variety of roles at several commercial and academic clinical research facilities including:
• Centre for Sleep Research – Basil Hetzel Institute, University of South Australia (Adelaide, South Australia)
• CMAX (Adelaide, South Australia)
• Nucleus Network (Melbourne, Victoria)
• Hammersmith Medicines Research (London, UK)
• PARC Clinical Research – University of Adelaide (Adelaide, South Australia)
• Spinal Unit – Royal Adelaide Hospital (Adelaide, South Australia)
