Biography/Research Focus

As the Research Manager for the Prostate Cancer Research Group I am responsible for administration for the group’s projects as well as managing activities of the Movember Revolutionary Team Award, which includes numerous researchers located in Australia, New Zealand, Europe and North America. My role encompasses facilitating communication between collaborators, liaison with internal and external stakeholders, preparation of research grants, manuscripts, reports and ethics submissions, staff appointments, promotions and budgeting and financial management.
