Personal profile


Dr Furlong manages the Neurodegenerative Disease Biobank in the Centre for Motor Neuron Disease Research at Macquarie University.

After completing her PhD in molecular medicine from Trinity College Dublin in 2013, she gained a quality control position with an analytical science company. In 2014, she moved to Brisbane, and began working as a research officer in the University of Queensland, investigating the genetics of MND. Later that year, Sarah started as a research officer in a biobank in Queensland Institute of Molecular Medicine, working on next generation sequencing projects and organising biobank projects. In late 2015, Sarah took on the role of biobank manager at Macquarie, overseeing the clinical and laboratory operations, data management and governance of the facility.
