Nay Chi Khin

Nay Chi has a background of molecular biology and protein biochemistry. She has CRISPR editing experience in mice, mammalian cell cultures and model plant species, such as Arabidopsis, liverworts and mosses. Nay Chi’s vision during her time in the Centre is to set up the pipeline of precise gene editing protocols in canola and chickpeas with optimised transformation and regeneration of plants.


The ARC Training Centre for Accelerated Future Crops Development is funded by the Australian Research Council under its Industrial Transformation Training Hubs Program to run from 2022 to 2027.

It is a collaboration of universities, government research agencies and the Australian grains sector’s key stakeholders in training, R&D, social engagement, responsible innovation, breeding, marketing and delivery.

It also has international partners in gene-editing, SynBio, crop breeding, and, other partnerships for co-developing deep technologies to transform the agriculture industry and global food security.
