Q&A with our Clinical Research Fellow

26 May 2015

Sangeetha Ramanujam is a Clinical Research Fellow at MIA, we sat down with her for 5 minutes to get some insight into her role.

What is your role at MIA?

I am a Clinical Research Fellow specialising this year in melanoma at MIA and I am on my post FRACP Training.

My day-to-day involves working in the clinics for half days three times a week with Alex Menzies and Alex Guminski. Outside of these times I work on research projects. It is a real balance of the two.

What is your favourite part of your role?

I enjoy working in the clinics and managing patients. I also enjoy the clinical research, I am currently looking at patients who have had Anti-PD-1 trial and how it is effecting their toxicity levels.

What advice would you give to anyone looking to follow a similar career path as you?

Determination is the key, where there is a will there is a way and never give up.

What do you do in your spare time?

I love to spend quality time with my husband and two children.
