Dr Piriya Sasajala had begun her career in scientific research at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland where she worked on embryonic stem cell research relating to Parkinson’s Disease. She moved to A*STAR to continue her research in stem cell biology and focused on fetal stem cell transfer to mothers during pregnancy. Subsequently she established the postgraduate career services for PhD/Masters graduates at the National University of Singapore and her expertise has enabled her graduate students to secure positions in companies such as Google, HP, A*STAR, Micron, P&G etc. Piriya completed her PhD in Fetal Stem Cell Biology at A*STAR/Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, NUS and graduated with honours in Molecular Biology from the University of Edinburgh. Using her expertise in international research, training and development and career coaching, Piriya hopes to guide our students towards gaining a better self-awareness and making informed decisions regarding their education and career choices.
