Dr Anoop K Enjeti is a clinician scientist who has been conducting clinical trials (co-operative groups) and laboratory based research for the Hunter Haematology Research Group at Calvary Mater Newcastle since 2006. His research interests combine a background in clinical haematology and a passion for thrombosis and coagulation, with an emphasis on the role of circulating microparticles.
He works closely with Dr Lisa Lincz in the Hunter Haematology Research Group. He is also involved in collaborations with various researchers from the University of Newcastle; Dr Nikki Verrills (Cancer Research Group), working on novel therapeutic strategies in myeloid leukaemia and Dr Chris Paul (Health Behaviour Research Group), working on medication adherence in haematological malignancies. He is also involved with a project on genetic profiling of cancers (currently focusing on plasma cell disorders) with the Molecular Medicine Department at HAPS.
