Deeksha Sharma is a PhD Candidate with the Stroke Research Programme at the South Australian Health & Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI) and the University of Adelaide. Her research focuses on investigating proteomic and lipidomic biomarkers for the diagnosis of transient ischaemic attacks (TIAs) in order to reduce the risk of ischaemic stroke. This project is being conducted within a multidisciplinary team and is based at the Royal Adelaide Hospital. Deeksha is primarily interested in the clinical translation of research in cerebrovascular disease.
