Research Interests

Role of the immune system and its response to tumours

Katy joined the Trev & Joyce Deeley Research Centre in May 2003 as the first Research Assistant giving her the unique opportunity to be a part of the initial start-up phase of the DRC.  The following year she began setting up a histology lab which has grown into the Molecular and Cell Immunology Core, a core facility that serves not only the DRC but many national and international collaborators.  The specialty of the MCIC is multicolour immunohistochemistry and immunofluorescence, aided by state of the art imaging and analysis systems.  Katy serves as the manager of the MCIC and is responsible for overseeing a group of dedicated staff and students in delivering histological analysis to many different researchers in addition to continuing development of new platforms to get the most information out of the tiniest pieces of tissue.  Katy's main research focus is understanding the interactions between tumours and the immune cells in the tumour microenvironment.
