Personal profile


Dr Hetvi Gandhi works as a research assistant at the department of Anatomy and Developmental Biology.  She persued her PhD from university of Technische Universität Dresden, Germany, in the lab of Prof. Petra Schwille. During her PhD, she worked on interlukine-4 receptor signalling using molecular biology and advanced imaging and showed that interlukine signals inmate largely from the endosomes. She then worked as a postdoctral research fellow at Intitut des maladies génétiques (IMAGINE Institute), Paris, Farnce with Dr. Matias Simons on a rare genetic disease - Dent's disease using Drosophila Melanogaster as a model organism. She then worked with Prof. Katharina Gaus at UNSW, Sydney on microprinting and super-resolution techniques.

Her current research focus is on standerdizing single molecule imaging and expansion microscopy for various biological sample ranging from single cell to tissues.
