Jason Ross's Biography

Jason Ross, Sr Research Scientist And Team Leader, Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation

Dr Jason Ross completed his BSc in Biochemistry and Genetics and an MSc in Plant Biotechnology at the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand before undertaking a doctorate in Plant Biotechnology at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia. From there, he moved in 2004 to Sydney to work in human health research at the CSIRO, Australia’s national scientific research agency - where he works to this present day. Dr Ross has research interests in epigenomics, DNA methylation biomarkers and bioinformatics. Presently he leads a team developing liquid biopsy biomarkers for colorectal cancer and traumatic brain injury and he develops computational approaches for data analysis.
Dr Ross’ research has had translational impact. He is co-inventor on patents describing epigenomics technologies and biomarkers. Two of the biomarkers now constitute the Colovera™ ctDNA test, a colorectal cancer diagnostic developed in partnership with Clinical Genomics and Flinders University. Colovera™ is now available on the US market.
