Murray is responsible for teaching haematology in the School of Health Sciences, and is the unit coordinator for Haematology 1 (CXA231), Haematology 2 (CXA332) and Transfusion Science (CXA333). He also contributes to teaching in Introduction to Medical Laboratory Sciences (CXA101) and Medical Laboratory Practice (CXA401). He has experience in teaching both under- and post-graduate haematology to students studying Medical Science, as well as under- and post-graduate medicine, and multi-disciplinary units in Medical Laboratory Science.
Murray’s broad research interests are in haemostasis with a particular focus on investigating mechanisms of blood coagulation and platelet aggregation that lead to thrombosis (blood clots). He is currently investigating abnormalities of haemostasis in systemic lupus erythematosus (and other chronic diseases), and the contribution of antiphospholipid antibodies to the development of thrombosis. He collaborates with research groups in Tasmania and throughout Australia and has supervised numerous research students at PhD, MSc and Honours levels.
Murray completed a BSc with First Class Honours in Medical Science and a PhD from Curtin University in Western Australia.
Murray is currently Senior Lecturer in Haematology, Course Coordinator of the Bachelor of Biomedical Science and a Graduate Research Coordinator for Human Life Science students in the School of Health Sciences. He is an APACE registered member and former Chair of the Tasmanian Branch of the Australian Institute of Medical Scientists (AIMS), a Fellow of the Faculty of Science (RCPA) and a member of the Australasian Society of Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ASTH) and International Society on Thrombosis and Hemostasis (ISTH).
