Dr. Joanne Tan is a senior postdoctoral researcher at the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute where she leads the miRNAs and Diabetes research programs in the Vascular Research Centre, Heart & Vascular Health Program, Lifelong Health Theme. She is also an Affiliate Senior Lecturer at The University of Adelaide. She is a vascular biologist with interests and expertise in angiogenesis and diabetes-impaired cellular mechanisms. She completed her PhD at The University of Sydney in 2007 where she looked at the role of adipocyte differentiation in the development of metabolic syndrome. She then began her postdoctoral training at the Heart Research Institute, Sydney where she explored the vasculoprotective effects of high-density lipoproteins (HDL), with a particular focus on the role of HDL in angiogenesis-associated diseases. Her current research interests include exploring novel therapeutic targets that will alleviate vascular complications associated with diabetes.
