Dr Dineika Chandrananda is a senior research officer at the Molecular Biomarkers and Translational Genomics Lab at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in Australia. She leads a bioinformatics team that develop methods to retrieve multi-omic data from circulating tumour DNA including methylation changes, mutational signatures, inferred gene expression and fragmentomics information. Her current research focuses on integrate these data layers through machine learning to detect residual disease after curative therapy and to monitor how tumours evolve and acquire resistance as patients undergo treatment. 

Dineika is funded through a VCA Early-Career Fellowship and an NHMRC Ideas grant. Her ongoing passion is to translate these minimally invasive methodologies to the clinic under the mantra of ‘bench to bedside’.
