MANDY LIM, PHD

Research Fellow

PhD in Biological Sciences, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (2019)

BS in Biological Sciences, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore  (2012)

PROJECTS: MicroRNA sensors; MicroRNA expression and regulation

EMAIL

I completed my PhD at Temasek Life Sciences Laboratory in 2019, where I studied mechanisms of miRNA processing and expression during development, and their biological roles in gene regulation. I am currently working on projects to engineer a novel context-specific ribozyme-based technology platform for diagnostic and therapeutic applications. Besides translational RNA technologies, I am also interested in the non-coding genome in development and disease. In my free time, I enjoy solo travel and spending time outdoors in nature.

EMAIL

I graduated from University of Cambridge in June 2020 with a BA (Hons) in Natural Sciences, specialising in Biochemistry. Understanding disease mechanisms and developing new therapeutics has always been my interest. I’m excited to work on developing ribozymes for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. Outside of research, I enjoy playing badminton and solving puzzles.

MINOLI DOSHI

Research Officer

BS (Hons) with Minor in Chemistry, Qatar University (2018)

Masters of Biological Sciences (Research), National University of Singapore (2020)

PROJECTS: Ribozymes, directed evolution, in vivo genetic circuits

EMAIL

I obtained my bachelor's in Biological Sciences from Qatar University and my masters from the National University of Singapore, with a specialization in structural biochemistry and microbiology. In my master's, I studied the conformational dynamics of bacterial signaling proteins that follow a non-canonical mode of activation using HDX-MS. In my bachelor's, I studied bacteriocin production by Bacillus thuringiensis against pathogenic bacteria. I also spent some time studying the effects of certain invasive plant species on native plant species in mangrove and desert eco-systems. In my spare time, I enjoy gardening and playing video-games.

BS (Hons) in Chemistry (Minor in Mathematics)


PROJECTS: RNA structure modelling, ribozymes

EMAIL

I graduated from National University of Singapore in December 2020 with a Bachelor of Science (Chemistry major, Mathematics minor). My FYP is on the metabolite study of celery using NMR. I developed interest for coding in the recent years and I hope to learn more about using Python for data processing with the incorporation of AI. I enjoy playing basketball and looking for good food around Singapore during my free time.
