Dr Brown is a graduate of the University of Adelaide and obtained her PhD at the University of Queensland through the Queensland Institute of Medical Research.
Dr Brown has worked in the field of malignant haematology for over 15 years, with much of this time spent investigating aberrant signalling, transcriptional and genetic changes associated with the pathogenesis of acute myeloid leukaemia.
More recently, Dr Brown has focussed on germline genetic predisposition to Haematological Malignancy through the Australian Familial Haematological Cancer Study. Using the collection of over 170 families with predisposition to HM, Dr Brown has identified a range of germline mutations in genes predisposing to myeloid and lymphoid subtype malignancies, as well as solid tumours.
In her current position Dr Brown combines her research interests with overseeing the development and implementation of new diagnostic tests for molecular oncology using the latest genetic technologies.
