Laboratory head - Atomic Pathology Laboratory
Associate Professor Dominic Hare
PhD, BSc (Hons), CChem, FRSC

Dominic recieved a PhD in chemistry from the University of Technology Sydney in 2009, and has since dedicated his career to studying the biochemistry of metals in neurodegenerative diseases. His passion is bringing together multidisciplinary scientists to answer real world problems, recognising that discoveries are rarely made by one person alone. He has developed a wide network of collaborators to not only help paint a picture of metals in the brain throughout life, but also apply cutting-edge analytical technology to new and exciting avenues of disease research.
