We would like to invite you to join our ‘My Research’ sessions. These sessions are delivered by members that have undertaken an audit or evaluation. They will spend 10 minutes describing their career pathway and the next 10 minutes about the research methods that they used. There will be time for detailed questions following the talk. These sessions will enable members to learn about quantitative and qualitative methods and the learning may guide and help you in your future projects. We also hope that this will be a good opportunity to learn about different career pathways in cancer pharmacy.
The session will be delivered by: Julian Lindsay
Julian Lindsay (BPharm, MClinPharm, PhD candidate) is a Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) Pharmacist at Royal North Shore Hospital in Sydney, Australia and a research fellow and PhD candidate at the National Center for Infection in Cancer (NCIC) at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in Melbourne, Australia. His research interest is prevention of infections in patients with blood cancers and those undergoing bone marrow transplants including cytomegalovirus, Epstein-barr virus and invasive fungal infections. He will be conducting research full time in Seattle, USA, at The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Centre, in conjunction with the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in Melbourne, Australia. The research aims to address the critical knowledge gaps related to the optimization of antifungal prophylaxis, involving large scale clinical studies of patient outcomes when using new antifungal medications, as well as optimisation of antifungal dosing using pharmacogenomic testing to improve outcomes.
The session will be chaired by: Nick Duncan
