Sarah Hayes

Dr Sarah Hayes was awarded a Doctor of Philosophy in 2013 from Macquarie University (Sydney, Australia) for her work in the area of colorectal cancer. Her doctoral research involved the identification of a protein that could predict patient response to 5-fluorouracil-based chemotherapy using advanced mass spectrometry.

Now at the University of Sydney, Dr Hayes has been awarded a Cancer Institute NSW Early Career Fellowship to continue her work using cutting-edge equipment to rapidly screen samples from lung cancer patients to discover proteins that could assist in patient diagnosis and prognostication.
