Doctor Gemma Cadby - Research Fellow

Gemma is a genetic epidemiologist at the Centre for GOHaD. She completed her PhD investigating genetic variants associated with melanoma severity in 2010 from the University of Western Australia. She then spent 2 years at the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research. Since returning to the University of Western Australia, her research has focused on understanding the genetic aetiology of complex traits, with a particular interest in mesothelioma and cardiovascular disease. Most recently, Gemma has a research project investigating the effect of sleep apnoea severity on long-term health outcomes in Western Australian adults.
