Biography

Dr Sashindranath has over 15 years of experience in Neuroscience research and is an expert in the fields of brain injury and stroke. She currently works as a Senior Research Fellow with the Vascular Biology group in the Australian Centre for Blood Diseases, Monash University, where she leads a team of research assistants and PhD students. Her current research interests are focussed on improving outcomes in small vessel thrombosis and ischemic stroke. She previously worked as a Research Fellow at the Molecular Neurotrauma and Haemostasis laboratory in the same department. She has received and been named on grant applications amounting to over 150,000$ and has been involved in securing 4 successful NHMRC grant applications. She has had 22 publications in the last 7 years inclduing 4 as co-senior author.

Dr Sashindranath graduated with a PhD from the University of Melbourne in December 2009 during which she studied seizure induced oxidative stress and kinase signalling processes in epilepsy. She was the recipient of the Melbourne Research Scholarship (2004-2008) as well as the Leslie Eric Paddle scholarship (2006 and 2007) and the RJ Gleghorn scholarship (2007) for PhD studies. Dr Sashindranath completed a BSc Hons degree from the University of Cape Town, South Africa in 2003.
