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 Behavioural Science at UniSC 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
Available for guest lectures in biochemistry, molecular biology and RNA biology.
Dr Sarah Bajan's specialist areas of knowledge include molecular biology, RNA biology, biochemistry and genetics.
