Personal profile


Dr Tu Nguyen-Dumont is a cancer geneticist and bioinformatician. She is a current National Breast Cancer Foundation (Australia) Career Development Fellow (2017-2020)

Tu was awarded her PhD in 2010 from University Claude Bernard, Lyon, France. She completed her PhD training in the Genetic Cancer Susceptibility group at the International Agency for Research on Cancer/World Health Organization (IARC/WHO, France), during which she received a PhD scholarship from Fondation de France and a Special Trainee Award from IARC/WHO. In 2011, she was awarded a Komen Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship, which allowed her to gain international research experience by moving to Melbourne and training at the Genetic Epidemiology Laboratory, The University of Melbourne.

Since 2017, she has been a Senior Research Fellow in the Precision Medicine group, School of Clinical Sciences at Monash Health, Monash University. She is an Honorary Research Fellow in the Department of Clinical Pathology, The University of Melbourne Centre for Cancer Research.


Research interests

Tu and her team use cutting-edge molecular techniques and bioinformatics to understand the underlying causes of genetic predisposition to breast, prostate and paediatric cancers.

Her training and expertise puts her in a unique position in the "research and translation" space. She believes that translational bioinformatics will enable to fully realise the biological and clinical value of the vast amount of data that is currently being generated.
