Dr Niall M Byrne is a research officer in the Bone Biology Division of the Garvan Institute, investigating prostate tumour cell dormancy in bone

Niall graduated from the University of Ulster, Northern Ireland with a First Class Honours in Biomedical Science (with Diploma in Professional Practice) in 2009. He subsequently completed his PhD at the University of Ulster in 2014 in the laboratory of Prof Stephanie McKeown, investigating the role of the tumour microenvironment in the treatment response of prostate tumours. During the course of his PhD Niall developed a keen interest in intravital imaging techniques and the role of tumour hypoxia in malignant progression.

In September 2014 Niall relocated to Sydney to continue his research interests in prostate cancer, joining the laboratory of Prof Peter Croucher and Prof Mike Rogers in the Bone Biology Division at the Garvan Institute. He is currently working as part of the ProMis program, investigating the role of dormant cells in prostate cancer bone metastasis; utilising single cell technologies and intravital imaging techniques. Niall is also a scientific representative for the Young Garvan committee, a member of the the Post Doctoral Development Committee and sits on the organising committee of the St Vincent's Research Symposium.
