Entrepreneurial PhD 
PhD: Silencing of fusion-gene expression in cancer with synthetic long-noncoding RNA therapies 

Swati is pursuing her Doctor of Philosophy in RNA Therapeutics. In 2021, she graduated from the University of Western Australia with a major in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. On entering into a Masters program, she received the UWA Global Excellence Scholarship. At the end of her program, she received the Academic Achievement Award for Semester 1 and 2 in 2020 and Semester 1 in 2021. She is currently a recipient of the Research Training Program scholarship issued by the University of Queensland. 

Throughout her journey, Swati has ventured into different fields from being a program analyst to now a researcher. She believes that her multidiscipline experience has shaped her into what she is now. Apart from her studies, Swati also likes to read and write poems. She believes that writing poems helps her in connecting ideas which eventually translates into her research output too. In addition, she likes to sketch, which is a means of healing for her. 

During her time at UQ, Swati aspires to receive industry training, as her aim is to embark on her Entrepreneurial journey after her PhD. Her main focus is to translate her research ideas into commercial solutions.

She hopes to achieve all-round development and become an entrepreneur during her stay at UQ.
