Martin Vu

PhD Candidate

Martin is a PhD candidate undertaking his studies with the Cancer Health Services Research unit. His research focuses on understanding how genomic sequencing can be used in clinical practice to improve health outcomes for patients living with a blood cancer. The aim of his research is to identify and address barriers to timely access to diagnostic testing technologies by demonstrating the value of genomic sequencing for stakeholders.

Prior to his PhD candidature, Martin has worked on multiple projects in genomics and health economics. Martin is particularly interested in methodological approaches in developing advanced simulation models to analyse individual patient care pathways and to evaluate the economic impact of new interventions for the healthcare system. Martin is specialised in health economics and health policy, building upon his strong interest in biomarker development and how scientific and clinical evidence influences policy decisions.

Martin has a Bachelor of Science (Pathology) and a Master of Public Health both from the University of Melbourne.

During his spare time, you can find Martin training for his wrestling matches and competitions.
