Alison Anderson

 

I commenced my career in health research in January 2005 as a Project Co-ordinator at the Telethon Kids Institute in Western Australia providing computational and research support to a team investigating a rare neurological disorder (Rett syndrome). I maintained this position on a part-time basis between 2008 and 2012 while undertaking a PhD to explore bioinformatics approaches for investigating toxicant-induced endocrine disruption of the epigenome.

In 2014, I joined the laboratory of Professor Mark Ragan, at the Institute of Molecular Bioscience, Queensland University, where I adopted network modelling approaches to investigate the molecular underpinnings of breast cancer metastasise. On completion of this post-doctoral position, I moved to Melbourne to take up my current position as a member of the Epilepsy and Neurology team within the Department of Medicine (RMH), University of Melbourne School of Medicine. Research interests:Building capacity for personalised medicine and preventative healthcare strategies through enhanced understanding of the molecular underpinnings of disease. Specific challenges of interest include: • the need to map molecular level finding to phenotypic endpoints that are meaningful/useful for clinicians; and• matching advances in molecular technologies with similar improvements in tools and data management protocols for interpretation, reuse and integration of omics data .
