Personal profile


Dr Catherine Carmichael is a group leader at the Australian Centre for Blood Diseases within Monash University's Central Clinical School. 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 in 2014. 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.
