Research Biography

Dr Prita Asih is a post-doctoral research fellow in the dementia research laboratory of Dr Arne Ittner at the Flinders Health and Medical Research Institute (FHMRI). Dr Asih received her PhD in Molecular Biology in 2019 from University of New South Wales (UNSW), researching the link between inflammation, beta amyloid, and tau pathogenesis in Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) mouse models. Prior to PhD completion, she was coordinating a clinical trial study at Edith Cowan University that investigated the impact of testosterone treatment for AD prevention. Dr Asih was also instrumental in developing and conducting blood biomarkers assay in pre-clinical AD. Of Dr Asih’s 20 publications since 2015, 10 studies are on blood biomarkers in dementia. Her publications have been cited 370 times with an h-index of 12. Her current work at Flinders University explores molecular functions of tau protein kinases in AD with the aim of translating these insights into diagnostic tools and treatment concepts that target tau. Dr Asih has built a strong expertise on investigation and analysis of tau phosphorylation and kinase function, including analysis of tau interactions and phospho-proteomics.
