Clinical genomic and molecular determinants of outcome in patients with Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes

2018-2021 (Doctoral Degree Fellowship): Clinical, genomic and molecular determinants of outcome in patients with Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes, Dr Lucy Fox, The University of Melbourne.

This project is the first scholarship in Australia to support a dedicated Doctor of Medical Science scholar to focus on describing, understanding and improving diagnosis of Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes using genomics evaluation. More accurate diagnosis of Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes using genomics evaluation underpins targeted treatment/s which will be associated with a greater chance of cure while avoiding harms and costs of inappropriate therapies. Working closely with the Aplastic Anaemia Registry (AAR) team, this new research role will also provide a valuable clinical resource to the AAR project team and contribute to analysis of Australian data for presentation and publication.
