I am currently undertaking a Doctor of Philosophy in the School of Medicine at the University of Adelaide. My project focusses on further understanding the role of hyaluronan, a extracellular matrix glycosaminoglycan, in ovarian cancer. In particular, determining the role of molecular weight of hyaluronan on ovarian cancer stem cell therapy resistance, proliferation, motility and invasion. Additionally, assessing hyaluronan molecular weight ranges as potential prognostic markers for ovarian cancer.
