Dominic Guanzon is a research fellow at the University of Queensland within the Salomon Lab, and supported by the Lions Medical Research Foundation. His expertise lies in the fascinating realm of extracellular vesicles where he is the genomics leader. Dominic’s research involves developing nucleic acid blood tests to diagnose disease. His primary research focus is on predicting chemotherapy response in women diagnosed with ovarian cancer, specifically distinguishing between individuals who respond positively to chemotherapy and those resistant to it (chemoresistance).
