Postdoctoral Research Scientist
I studied Biomedical Sciences in Melbourne and obtained my Doctorate of Philosophy from The University of Melbourne, in 2016, with a research focus of Heat Shock Protein induction for the treatment of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Following my PhD, I moved to the United Kingdom where I held a post under Porf. Dame Kay Davies working on utrophin modulation for the treatment of dystrophic cardiomyopathy. I August 2018, I began work on a collaborative project between Prof. Angela Russell and Prof. Paul Riley, focusing on the therapeutic potential of epicardial-derived exosomes on myocardial infarct and defining regenerative mechanisms to be exploited pharmocologically.
