Biography

Biography

Ian Dick is a research scientist with more than 35 years of experience working at the University of Western Australia. He spent the first part of his career working in the endocrinology of bone disease, with an emphasis on the role of oestrogen in calcium homeostasis and completed his PhD in 2001, which focused on the role of oestrogen in renal calcium homeostasis.this involved animal and cell culture work as well as the assay of a number of calcium related hormones in human serum and animal tissues.  He was also involved in the biostatistical analysis of a number of human trials examining the role of calcium and oestrogen on bone mineral density and fracture.

In 2008, he commenced working with the National Centre for Asbestos Related Diseases (NCARD). Initially his role was centred around biomarker research for the diagnosis of the asbestos related cancer malignant mesothelioma. Subsequently, he became involved in NCARD’s neoantigen research project, specifically focusing on the search for somatic mutations that may be targeted for the treatment of mesothelioma using bioinformatic methods to determine these from whole exome sequencing and RNA sequencing.

His principle responsibilities are currently to provide bioinformatic support to the NCARD neoantigen research programme and to provide general biostatistical support to the group
