Dr Elaina Maginn received her PhD for work investigating novel therapeutic approaches for chronic B-cell malignancies. Subsequently, she joined the Division of Cancer, to investigate and develop new strategies for treating pancreatic cancer, with particular focus on identifying how DNA damage response pathways may be targeted for therapeutic gain. She was also involved in developing these strategies for ovarian cancer.
