Personal profile

Biography

Ryan is a second-year PhD student under the Translational Cancer Pathology Laboratory at the University of Western Australia. Ryan is studying the dysregulation of megakaryopoiesis and how it is implicated in the progression to myelofibrosis in myeloproliferative disorders.

Research

Ryan's PhD project will focus on blood cancers known as Myeloproliferative Neoplasms (MPN), which is comprised of an indolent chronic phase and a more aggressive phase, when the bone marrow begins to scar. Ryan will be using cutting-edge genetic technologies to investigate how DNA changes affect the biology and function of megakaryocytes and cause the cancer to behave so aggressively. The DNA changes will be able to be used in clinical practice to detect patients whose disease is advancing, and it will lead to the identification of markers that can be targeted with new drugs.
