Much of her work relates specifically to autoimmunity in Myalgic Encephalomyelitis /Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Sonya is regularly  invited to  present her findings at international conferences. 

Her research in the area of exercise immunology has also contributed to the body of knowledge relating to the effect of doping in sport and she serves as Sports Medicine Australia's national spokesperson in this area.

The vital research conducted by Associate Professor Marshall-Gradisnik has attracted more than $1 million in grant funding and she has produced 21 peer-reviewed papers, five book chapters and one provisional patent.
