Past Students - 2020
Qinying Lan | Masters Scholar
I am a Master of Biomedical Science student of the University of Melbourne. I’m currently taking a research project in the Royal Women’s Hospital under the supervision of Dr Peate and Dr Marino.
My project explores the top three menopause symptoms that women after cancer most want to get rid of through patient report outcome measures. We collect data from the patients who visit the Menopause Symptoms after Cancer clinic in the Royal Women’s Hospital and try to develop a database for further investigation. We believe our project will provide essential information for the clinicians and help them to provide better care for their patients.
Niamh Waters | Honours Scholar
I completed my bachelor of science in 2018 at the University of Melbourne and this year I will be undertaking my honours year within the emPoWeR unit, under the supervision Dr Peate and Dr Marino. I will be working on the EndoNeeds project, working to explore the physical, social and psychological needs of people with endometriosis. I will be focusing in particular on those who have been diagnosed more than 10 years ago.
Hopefully, this work can be used for the subsequent development of an endometriosis specific unmet needs instrument and improve quality of life for those living with endometriosis.
Daniella Salib | Honours Scholar
I completed my Bachelor of Biomedical Science with Distinction at Deakin University in 2019, I joined the emPoWeR unit at the Royal Women’s Hospital to complete my Honours degree under the primary supervision of Dr Jennifer Marino and Dr Michelle Peate.
My project will explore the unmet needs of women living with ovarian cancer and their experiences in Australia in all aspects of their quality of life through interviews. The interviews can help identify any missing domains and needs in their quality of life from their ovarian cancer experience due to poor diagnosis and is often an overlooked cancer population.
