About

Professor Hang Quach,  of the University of Melbourne, is the director of Clinical Haematology and Clinical Haematology Research at St.Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne. She is a  consultant clinical and laboratory haematologist based at St.Vincent’s and Epworth Hospital. Her area of expertise is in haematological malignancies in particular multiple myeloma and lymphoma.  Her career is accentuated by her strong leadership in Australian clinical trials, with focus on the use of novel therapeutics for the treatment of blood cancers, not only to increase treatment options for patients but to ensure the access to the most effective treatment that may not otherwise be available to Australians. Her clinical and translational research focuses on novel therapeutics and their impact on the immunology and the microenvironment in multiple myeloma. Through competitive grants and industry collaborations, she has secured research funding of more than $13 million towards myeloma research and is widely published in peer-reviewed journals.  In addition to her clinical and research role,  she currently serves as a member of the International Myeloma Working Group (IMWG), Co-chair of the Myeloma Disease Group Committee of the ALLG, and leads the development and update of the Australian National Treatment Guideline for Multiple Myeloma as part of her role on the Myeloma Scientific Advisory Group (MSAG) for Myeloma Australia.
