Personal profile


Dr Catherine Carmichael is a group leader in the Centre for Cancer Research at the Hudson Institute of Medical Research, and adjunct Senior Research Fellow within the School of Clinical Sciences at Monash University. She completed her PhD and initial postdoctoral training at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute between 2004-2013, before moving to the Australian Centre for Blood Diseases at Monash University in 2014. Catherine was recruited to the Hudson Institute in February 2022 to lead the Leukaemia Modelling and Therapeutic Discovery group.

Her research focuses on gaining an understanding of the molecular mechanisms driving Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML) development and pathogenesis; with the ultimate goal of identifying novel methods for therapeutically targeting this extremely poor outcome malignancy.

Currently accepting PhD and Honours students.
