We would like to welcome Dr Twishi Gulati to Phenomics Australia’s team. Twishi brings an extensive experience in project design and business development strategy to our team. Her expertise will help us address an important capability gap for the research community, to benefit the health of all Australians.
The Phenomics Australia National Service Coordinator (In Vitro) will link key stakeholders funded through the NCRIS consortia with the platform facility teams and researchers who access the platforms to ensure engagement, sharing of technology development and education tools within the NCRIS network and beyond. This role is forward-thinking to ensure technology discussion and application and capturing the brightest researchers in the nation.
Dr Twishi Gulati has joined the Phenomics Australia team in the newly established National Service Coordinator (In Vitro) position. Since 2019, Twishi has been a Research Officer in the Victorian Centre for Functional Genomics (VCFG), a Phenomics Australia node at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. There she managed the CRISPR screening platform, supporting researchers from project design through to experimentation and analysis. More recently, she has been involved in the VCFG’s business development strategy and managing the iLAB instrument access and billing system. Twishi has a PhD in proteomics, molecular and cellular biology from The University of Melbourne.
“ I am excited to join the Phenomics Australia team to bring Australia-wide infrastructure and expertise together to work collaboratively across our in vitro capabilities to ultimately drive better healthcare outcomes.”
