Personal profile

Public Profile

Nisha completed her PhD Genetics (Haematology) jointly, from the University of Adelaide and The Basil Hetzel Research Insitute (TQEH), in 2015. Her PhD specifically focussed on the genetic variants associated with the onset and progression of chronic blood disorders. She identifed a number of novel genetic variants in myeloid cells from patient samples responsible for disease onset. 

Following her PhD, she has undertaken the study of atherosclerosis (underlying cause of cardiovascular diseases) under the leadership of Prof.Stephen Nicholls and Dr. Peter Psaltis. In atherosclerosis, the study of effective pharmacotherapies on macrophages and inflammation, has been central to her research.
