My Research – Session 5: Cytomegalovirus (CMV) management in allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation

Session 5 (Wednesday 15th September at 19:00 BST) in Collaboration with COSACPG



Register for the Session HERE:


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

Nick is an Academic Practitioner in the School of Pharmacy at the University of Birmingham and Consultant Haematology Pharmacist at University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust, UK. He qualified as a pharmacist in 1994 and has spent most of his career to date working in oncology and haematology, particularly in the area of haematopoietic stem cell transplantation. He qualified as an independent prescriber in 2010 and has an active prescribing role in a variety of haematology clinics. Areas of research interest include medicines adherence, chronic myeloid leukaemia and antifungal stewardship.


Nick is Secretary of the UK BMT Pharmacists Group –
