Personal profile


Hayley is an RNA scientist working as a Research Officer at the University of Western Australia, specializing in RNA design, research and manufacturing. She is currently involved in establishing WA’s first mRNA production facility under the umbrella of the Australian Centre for RNA Therapeutics in Cancer (ACRTC). Within this role she is involved in planning, budgeting, developing procedures under the Quality Management System, and collaborating with researchers to contribute to the research and development of RNA therapeutics to improve cancer treatments.

Prior to this RNA facility role, she planned and executed a sponsored research project with an external biotechnology company, focusing on antibody-based therapeutics for cancer research. Concurrently, she collaborated with the Genome Institute of Singapore (GIS) on an ongoing project involving long non-coding RNA structure discovery. She has been in the lab of Prof. Archa Fox since 2020. Additionally, she previously worked in pre-clinical trials for neonatal research in the Preclinical Intensive Care Research Unit (PICRU) with Prof. Jane Pillow.

Aside from laboratory-based research, she is passionate about tertiary education and has been involved in laboratory demonstrating and marking for undergraduate students in both the Schools of Human and Molecular Sciences (BIOC1001, SCIE1106, GENE3370, ANHB3323).

She aspires to pursue a PhD in the near future to further explore the intricacies of RNA therapeutics and contribute to innovative avenues for cancer treatment.
