I am Irene Chandra, a penultimate year student in University of Melbourne. I am majoring in Chemical Engineering. I believe VISRA is a great opportunity to gain invaluable research experience and explore one of my fields of interest, which is drug delivery. At the same time, VISRA is a great platform to network with fellow graduate student and obtain an insight into life as a graduate student. I am working on optimizing encapsulation of plasmid DNA in the micelles for effective delivery. It has been a great experience to be part of such an excellent program and two words I will leave you with are: ‘Highly Recommended!’
