Dr Kha Phan Research Officer, Biochemistry

Dr Phan is a self-motivated and highly productive early career researcher, based at La Trobe Institute for Molecular Science. His main research focus is to investigate how cells break apart when they die, a fundamental phenomenon that has profound implications in physiological and disease settings. He is also interested in developing novel therapeutics that target phosphoinositides, a particular group of lipids, though minor, frequently exploited by tumour cells and pathogens. He is extensively trained in biochemical and cell biological techniques, including cell death analyses and microscopy. With his passion for science and promoting research, he is aiming to become an independent researcher with his own laboratory while progressively being involved in inspiring public audience through public lectures, Outreach programs and social media.
