Biography

Dr Madara Ratnadiwakara is a post-doctoral scientist working in the RNA Biology in Health and Disease Laboratory led by Dr Minni Anko.

Dr Ratnadiwakara completed her PhD in 2015 at the John Curtin School of Medical Research- Australian National University under the supervision of A/Professor Anneke Blackburn. She then joined the Laboratory of Dr Minni Anko at the Monash University in 2016 as a post-doctoral research fellow. With the relocation of the laboratory, she joined the Hudson Institute of Medical Research in 2018 with joint appointments at the Centre of Reproductive Health and Centre of Cancer Research.  She also holds an adjunct appointment at the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute.

Dr Ratnadiwakara’s current research focuses mainly on the role or RNA binding proteins in regulating RNA processing machinaries during early development and cancer.
