Tamkin is currently a third-year PhD student at Sydney Medical School, The University of Sydney. She is investigating whether extracellular vesicles (EVs) could serve as non-invasive biomarkers in malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM), which could help with early diagnosis and improve targeted treatment options for patients. Tamkin is currently characterising EVs derived from cancer cells and patient plasma samples using a combination of EV markers and MPM tumour markers. Prior to commencing her PhD, Tamkin completed her Honours in Biomedical Engineering and worked as a Regulatory Consultant, where she managed regulatory submissions on behalf of manufacturers and advised on clinical evidence requirements for regulatory approval of medical devices.
