Personal profile


Professor 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 Mitochondrial Medicine and Biology research group at the Harry Perkins Institute for Medical Research. She was an Australian Research Council Future Fellow from 2009 to 2014 and currently she is a NHMRC Senior Research Fellow and Research Professor at The University of Western Australia and  Deputy Director ARC Centre of Excellence in Synthetic Biology.
