Dr Jennifer Soon

Research Fellow

Dr Jennifer Soon is a Medical Oncologist currently completing a Melanoma and Translational Research Fellowship with Prof Grant McArthur at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. She graduated from Monash University in 2010 with Honours and received her FRACP in 2018. She completed her specialist oncology training at Monash Health, Eastern Health, Alfred Health and Austin Health, maintaining an interest in melanoma and immunotherapy throughout her clinical practice.

Jenn has plans to embark on a PhD in 2021 under the co-supervision of Prof Maarten IJzerman, Prof Grant McArthur and Dr Fanny Franchini. Jenn has always been fascinated by the interplay between economics and health outcomes, and will be using both trial and real-world data to explore this. She is particularly looking forward to developing her skills in statistical analysis, R software and modelling.

To relax, Jenn enjoys toddler-wrangling, barbequing, and cross-stitching – but has found combining any of these hobbies impossible.
