"Genetic Alterations: The stress story.” AND "Regulation of the mitochondrial transcriptome". Other events...
I have been working in cytogenetics since I was 16. With a mother in cytogenetics and a father as a management consultant I was mentored and studied in both business and cytogenetics. The laboratory was originally located at Curtin University with involvement not only in pathology but research and education. My research has been focused mainly on early miscarriage but over the last 3 years we became involved in collaborative research with Professor George Yeoh’s group. A research project that collated years of data presented chromosomal rearrangements stimulated by nutrient stress in vitro with human peripheral blood lymphocyte cultures. Our work with George Yeoh has shown similar occurrences with their mouse cell lines. So I am now working with different stress models to characterise chromosomal and molecular changes and uncover their relevant mechanisms.

Aleksandra Filipovska received her PhD in 2002 from the University of Otago, New Zealand. From 2003-2005 she was a NZ Foundation for Research, Science and Technology Fellow at the MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit in Cambridge, the United Kingdom. In 2006 she relocated to Australia as a NHMRC Howard Florey Fellow and established her research group at the Centre for Medical Research at the University of Western Australia in Perth. She is currently an Australian Research Council Future Fellow at the Centre for Medical Research at the University of Western Australia. Her work has been focused on identifying mammalian mitochondrial RNA-binding proteins and investigating their role in RNA metabolism in health and models of disease. She has published a number of high profile papers in this area of research recently.
