Dr. Wassiti is a young innovator and researcher at Monash with experience developing mRNA and gene therapy. Since 2017 he has been working on the use of mRNA vaccines against viral diseases and as a therapeutic vaccine against skin and breast cancer; mRNA is a modular system that is characterized by rapid development and a simple bio-production process. When COVID-19 surfaced in Australia, Dr. Wassiti and his team quickly found a vaccine candidate that was powered by a novel technology called “Rapid Response” that he developed in the Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences
Dr. Khoa has dedicated his life to solving unmet clinical needs with novel medical technology. He holds a medical degree from Monash University and a Masters in Bioengineering from Stanford University as a Fulbright Fellow. He is currently investigating the development of a novel class of devices in the field of neurotechnology that will improve access to various data sets in medical AI.
