Smitha Rose Georgy

 

Smitha Georgy graduated from Kerala Agricultural university, India and proceeded to work in mixed animal practice. She moved to Australia in 2006 and undertook PhD from The University of Melbourne.

During her PhD, she investigated the molecular biology of bone repair and identified the role of Proteinase activated receptor-2 in osteoblast and osteoclast function. Smitha then worked as a research scientist in the Department of Medicine, Monash University from 2009 to 2018. During her research career, she identified the signaling pathways centered around a transcription factor, GRHL3, that regulates epithelial proliferation and differentiation. Her research is published in high impact factor journals including Cancer Cell and Journal of Investigative Dermatology and attracted research funding from NHMRC, Cancer Australia and GPRWMF. She supervised several postgraduate students at Monash University and continues there as an Adjunct Research fellow. In 2015, she completed National Veterinary Examination and started small animal practice in Melbourne. She joined the University of Melbourne as Lecturer in Veterinary Pathology in 2018.
