Personal profile


Dr Vincent is a clinician-scientist currently employed as a senior research fellow in the rheumatology group, centre for inflammatory diseases at Monash University.

He completed his medical training, including advanced training in rheumatology, at the University Hospital Centre of Caen and Paris in France between 1999 and 2010. He completed his PhD in immunology at Monash University in Melbourne in 2018, focused on biomarkers, especially BAFF, in autoimmune disease. 

Dr Vincent's specialization is in rheumatology with a focus on autoimmunity, specifically molecular and B cell immunology, and biomarker discovery in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). He is interested in research integrating clinical insights with novel data science approaches. Dr Vincent has a strong interest in Indigenous Australian health research.

His research vision is to improve understanding of SLE to develop targeted and personalised medicine approaches for patients, and help to close the health gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australian SLE sufferers.
