Paul Milne

Paul is a registered Biomedical Scientist who gained his PhD in the lab in early 2015. His PhD project was to use multiparameter flow cytometry to study the cells involved in haematological malignancies.

In acute leukaemia, the aim was to look at the 'missing cells' - those which are deleted from the normal blood count. The analysis of cellular deficiency may give us a better understanding of haematopoiesis, susceptibility to infection, and biological variability in acute leukaemia.

In Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis (LCH) and Hairy Cell Leukaemia (HCL), the aim was to track down the cells of origin of the disease. The analysis of these cells may give us a better understanding of LCH and HCL pathogenesis and potentially lead to new methods of monitoring the disease.
