Dr Marion Sweeney
I have a track record of research in the field of haematological disorders, including red cell disorders and haematological malignancies. My work is primarily concerned with the development of molecular diagnostic methods for the NHS and the analysis of clinical trials samples.
My current research is concerned with the development of methods for the detection and analysis of tyrosine kinase mutations within the BcrAbl rearrangement. Identification of of mutations in patients at diagnosis and relapse will enable the optimal drug treatment for the patient to be selected.
