Ms Hayley Dillon
Hayley Dillon is an accredited Exercise Scientist currently undertaking her PhD which is a collaboration between Deakin University and the Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute. Her PHD is exploring the efficacy of an individualised, multi-component physical activity intervention on preserving cardiometabolic function and improving quality of life in haematological cancer patients receiving an allogeneic stem cell transplant.
Hayley completed a Bachelor of Exercise and Sports Science with Honours at Deakin University and has experience working in athlete populations as a strength and conditioning coach. In addition to her interest in exercise testing and training in athlete populations, Hayley has a particular interest in exercise testing and training for the diagnosis and treatment of the adverse cardio-metabolic consequences of cancer.
Through her PhD she hopes to contribute to the development of new, evidence-based, individualised physical activity and sedentary behaviour guidelines for allogeneic SCT recipients.
