Alexis uses genomic technology to further understand blood group systems. She is also involved in testing whether we can predict donors’ iron levels using genomics. Alexis' previous research explored how the immune system responds to transfusion to improve patient outcomes.

Alexis was awarded her PhD at the University of Queensland where she investigated how a patient’s immune system can be affected by cardiac surgery and associated blood transfusions. Alexis has a background in Medical Science, completing her Bachelor of Applied Science (Medical Science) at the Queensland University of Technology.
