Current PhD Student Testimonial

The Australian Centre for Blood Diseases (ACBD) has a long and established track record in basic and translational haematology research. Extensive in vitro models in both benign and malignant haematology coupled with advanced imaging techniques including confocal microscopy are well established in the Centre. The ACBD also has vast experience and expertise in tissue culture, protein purification, protein gel electrophoresis, polymerase chain reaction, high performance liquid and gas chromatography and flow cytometry. The entire infrastructure for the above investigative techniques is available on-site. Currently, staff from the ACBD collaborate extensively with laboratories in the European Union, United Kingdom and United States, thereby permitting extensive and significant international collaborative research and the ability to travel and undertake some research at overseas research institutes. All of these facilities and expertise provide an ideal framework to facilitate my research objectives and development as a researcher. The ACBD is also closely aligned with the haematology consortium which staffs the haematology departments at both the Alfred Hospital and Monash Health with many clinicians holding dual appointments. Therefore, working in this environment provides me with the ideal opportunity to integrate my laboratory research with its inherent clinical application. The ACBD is therefore ideal for any aspiring researcher wishing to establish themselves as a biomedical researcher or clinician scientist.zane
