Dr Sarah Bajan completed her PhD at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Gene Regulation and Expression, University of Dundee. Sarah moved to Australia in 2012, as a post-doctoral research fellow in the School of Biomedical Engineering, University of Technology Sydney (UTS). Her PhD and post-doctoral work focused on elucidating molecular mechanisms of miRNA-mediated regulation of gene expression.
In January 2020, Sarah joined the School of Health and Sport Sciences at USC as a Lecturer in Biomedical Science. Sarah is still passionate about the many functions of non-coding RNAs and how they contribute to human health and disease. Sarah is also researching the suitability of genetic markers to authenticate natural food products.
- non-coding RNAs in the regulation of gene expression
- miRNAs in wound healing
- genetic markers for food authentication
Dr Sarah Bajan's specialist areas of knowledge include molecular biology, RNA biology, biochemistry and genetics.
