Personal profile


Dr. Brown completed her PhD in 2013 at the University of Melbourne. During her PhD, Dr. Brown studied the molecular mechanisms underpinning anaemia, including iron deficiency anaemia and beta thalassaemia, the most common causes of anaemia. She then worked as a Research Fellow at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, USA, where she studied pathways regulating chemotherapy resistance in acute meloid leukaemia (AML). In 2017, she moved to the Australian Ceneter for Blood Diseases, Monash University based at the Alfred Hospital. Here she is investigating improved targeted therapeutic strategies in AML.
