Meet the team: Imala Alwis
I'm Imala Alwis and I am a senior research officer at the Heart Research Institute, working in the Thrombosis group. Heart disease has affected me personally. My dad was in his mid fifties when he had triple bypass surgery. He led a very healthy lifestyle and he was only diagnosed during a routine medical check up.
How to make a nourish plate
There are regularly times during the course of my week, when I get home from a long day of work and find myself with the conundrum of having to find something to eat. What I’ve found works a treat on these days is creating a nourish plate. This is simply a plate of whole foods, as many as I can muster up from my fridge and pantry, presented as a smorgasbord of variety!
Meet the Team: Emily McCarthy
For the past two months, I have been on a scholarship offered by the HRI to New Zealand Undergraduate students, placed in the Thrombosis Group of the HRI. My passion for the biological sciences is something which I have been aware of for many years, but it has been through this experience that I have been able to get a glimpse of what a career in Biological Research will be like – and I love the way it looks!
