I am a biomedical research scientist and Head of the Molecular Mechanisms in Leukaemia laboratory at the Lowy Cancer Research Centre, University of New South Wales. My research interests in haematological cancers, and Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS) in particular, are very strongly geared towards translational medical outcomes.

My lab uses a combination of genomics, epigenomics, molecular biology and stem cell biology techniques to understand the mechanisms driving leukaemia, as well as those underpinning resistance to therapy. My lab is always looking for talented, motivated scientists and students, so please get in touch (Twitter/LinkedIn/email: ashwin dot unnikrishnan at unsw.edu.au) if you are interested in discussing opportunities in my lab.
