Technical Assistant

I am a Technical Assistant working in the Life Sciences team at Wrays. I graduated from the University of Western Australia with a Bachelor of Science (Biomedical Science), with First Class Honours in Pharmacology, and a PhD in tumour biology and vascular/peptide targeting.

I have three years of postdoctoral research experience working alongside bioengineers, from BRITELab, UWA, on clinical trials in breast cancer, using a disruptive medical imaging technology, manufactured by the labs spin out commercial company, OncoRes Medical.

While completing my PhD, I acquired knowledge in the areas of research, commercialisation, innovation and venture capital investment through courses I completed from the Centre for Entrepreneurial Research and Innovation (CERI), Perth Biodesign for Medical Technology course and Brandon Capital/Medical Research Commercialisation Fund Internship Program.

Currently, I am undertaking a Masters in Intellectual Property from the University of Technology Sydney. As part of the Wrays team I am fortunate to be learning from leaders in the field, and to be a part of this elite circle. I hope to be able to serve future clients with in-depth analysis of various scientific technologies and developments to ensure they receive the most sophisticated and holistic advice in patent and trademark prosecution.

On a personal note, science has always fascinated me, and the opportunity to work alongside leading scientists at the forefront of cutting-edge technologies and scientific developments is the dream.
