Research Biography

Anya Arthurs is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow working in the Pregnancy, Health and Beyond Laboratory. After completing her PhD in the field of post-transcriptional modifications in the placenta, Anya moved to Flinders in 2019, studying the mechanisms by which circular RNAs, as well as other non-coding RNAs, are able to facilitate the development of the placenta and contribute to pregnancy complications. She is also in the pursuit of biomarkers for complications such as preeclampsia and stillbirth.

Her interests include the involvement of epigenetics and non-coding RNAs in various aspects of human development and disease, particularly in cancer and reproductive health. From her research, she hopes to deliver diagnostic tests that will inform clinical decision-making and aid in identifying drug targets for novel therapeutics.

Anya is an involved member of two ethics committees at Flinders University and is the Scientific Meeting Convener for the 2020 SA Australian Society for Medical Research.
