Dr Neelam Gogoi
Centre Fellow, ARC Training Centre for Future Crops Development
Postdoctoral Researcher, Research School of Biology
Neelam Gogoi is an Innovation Fellow with the ARC Training Centre for Future Crops. Neelam has a background in material nanochemistry specialising in nanotechnology based gene editing and has years of experience in CRISPR nanoengineering in crop plants gained during postdoctoral research at the University of Sydney. She has developed a polymeric nanoparticle-based technology to deliver CRISPR/Cas9 in wheat to study the genetic potency of deadly rust pathogens. She has also validated nanotechnology-based gene transformation technologies in multiple varieties of wheat, barley, tomato that are known to be extremely difficult to transform through traditional approaches.
Areas of expertise:
Non Genetically Modified Uses Of Biotechnology
Genetically Modified Horticulture Plants
SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE GENETIC & FIELD TECHNOLOGIES FOR FUTURE CROPS
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.
