Dr Mirana Ramialison

 - Associate Investigator

Research focus: Bioinformatic analysis of how gene regulatory networks drive embryonic development and contribute to congenital heart disease

Dr Ramialison is head of the Systems Developmental Biology Laboratory at the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute (ARMI) at Monash University in Melbourne. She is an NHMRC/NHF Career Development Fellow and leads a multi-disciplinary team of bioinformaticians and molecular biologists, to study heart development, evolution and disease. She takes a systems biology approach to uncover the gene regulatory networks that control gene expression during cardiac development, and identify abnormal interactions that cause congenital diseases. Prior to joining the ARMI in February 2014, Dr Ramialison was an EMBO and HFSP post-doctoral Fellow at the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute in Sydney. She received her Engineering degree from the University of Luminy (France) and PhD at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (Germany).
