Jodi M Saunus
Dr Jodi Saunus is a Senior Research Fellow based at the UQ Centre for Clinical Research, at the Royal Brisbane Hospital (Herston, Australia). She was awarded a PhD from the University of Queensland in 2006 in cancer molecular genetics and cell biology, and now works in molecular breast pathology under the mentorship of Prof Sunil Lakhani. She has published in prominent medical research journals including Cancer Research, Nature, Nature Communications and The Journal of Pathology. Her research focuses mainly on finding new ways to improve the management of patients with brain metastases, including identifying mechanisms of brain metastasis development and novel therapeutic targets, particularly personalised therapy and drug repositioning. This multidisciplinary portfolio includes in vitro and in vivo models of breast cancer brain metastasis, high resolution molecular profiling of human clinical samples and a clinical bioimaging study (BoNSAI) that aims to characterise the unique factors impacting the uptake of monoclonal antibody therapies in these tumours (e.g. tumour hypoxia, interstitial pressure, perfusion dynamics, target expression).
