Blood Synergy PhD

Description 
We have opportunities for suitable candidates to undertake a PhD in the Blood Synergy research program based at Monash University. The Blood Synergy is a collaborative clinical research program funded by an NHMRC Synergy grant, and is focused on addressing Australia’s national transfusion priorities to deliver safer and more appropriate transfusion support for patients, help guide better stewardship of national blood supplies, and reduce costs to the community. Applicants would ideally have a background in medicine or clinical sciences, and an interest in haematology, transfusion medicine, critical care, emergency/trauma, surgery, and/or health economics. The research will address evidence gaps that still exist around how blood is used in Australia, clinical outcomes, patient and clinician preferences, and costs. Dependent on prior clinical or research experience, and areas of interest, projects will be tailored to focus on patient blood management and health economics in critical bleeding, critical care, blood diseases or immunoglobulin use.
