Priya completed her master’s in biotechnology with a specialisation in molecular biology and biochemistry from the University of Western Australia. During her dissertation, she explored the biochemical and genetic consequences of overexpressing a protein import component in mitochondria of Arabidopsis Thaliana. Her PhD is focused on enhancing peripheral nerve regeneration by devising an electrically conductive nerve guidance conduit. The project aims to develop a biocompatible conduit with electroconductive and topographical features to support bioelectrical signal transduction and guided regeneration of nerves.
