Research interests

Dr Buss is currently establishing a method to grow heart muscle cells in the lab. This method will be used as a platform to investigate future research questions, including validating potential biomarkers of mild/moderate cardiac ischaemia that have been previously identified by our group.

Dr Buss is also interested in the intersection of the fields of heart disease and cancer (cardio-oncology), and aims to identify strategies to mitigate the adverse effects of cancer drugs on cardiovascular health.

Background

Dr Buss completed her PhD in the Department of Pathology and Biomedical Science at the University of Otago, Christchurch. Her PhD work focussed on how immunotherapy drugs modify the effect of exercise on cancer, and she joined the Christchurch Heart Institute in 2021, after completing her doctoral studies.
