Dr Tasnuva Kabir Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research Perth, Australia

After obtaining a medical degree in Bangladesh, Dr. Kabir pursued a higher degree in research at the University of Sheffield, earning Master’s and PhD degrees to obtain a better understanding of the molecular basis of cancer and the evolution of therapeutic landscape in solid tumours. During this academic journey, she developed a profound interest in the field of non-coding RNAs, particularly microRNAs, and their effect in silencing gene expression.

After completing her PhD, she moved to New Zealand for a year, working as a research assistant at Dunedin Hospital’s vascular surgery unit, where her research was focused on abdominal aortic aneurysm.

In 2016, she relocated to Western Australia, where she joined the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research as a post-doctoral fellow and embarked on a compelling expedition to harness the potential of microRNAs as therapeutics for advanced liver cancer, contributing to the ever-evolving field of cancer research.
