Personal profile


Dr Shklovskaya studied medicine in Russia, graduating with distinction before completing her PhD in the area of haematopoietic stem cell research in Russia and Switzerland. She undertook postdoctoral training in experimental haematology at the Research Department (ZLF) of Basel University Hospital in Switzerland, where she studied mechanisms of bone marrow failure and haematopoietic recovery after stem cell transplantation for malignancy. Her work into regulation of cytokine release underlying haematopoietic recovery received an ongoing support from the Swiss Cancer League and resulted in nine publications in international journals, including four in Blood. In 2002, Dr Shklovskaya moved to Australia and joined Professor Barbara Fazekas de St Groth at Centenary Institute in Sydney. She studied immune regulation in autoimmunity and cancer, combining complex transgenic animal models and multiparameter flow cytometry to discover a new paradigm in immunology - a population of antigen-presenting cells exclusively committed to maintaining immune tolerance on body surfaces. She also developed animal models to study adaptive immune responses in cancer, before moving into translational cancer immunology research and joining Professor Helen Rizos at MQ University in 2017. She is combining flow cytometry and in vitro models to gain insights into immune regulation in metastatic melanoma, particularly in patients who acquired resistance to immunotherapy.
