Prabha majored in Chemistry and Biology for her undergraduate studies and chose to study Plant Biology for her Masters’ degrees in India. She then worked with two biotechnology companies where she acquired research and management skills. She received a PhD in Molecular Virology from the National University of Singapore in 2004 and subsequently worked with the Singapore Stem Cell Bank and the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute. During her time with commercial companies and over her PhD years, Prabha developed a keen interest in the translation of research ideas into reality and Intellectual Property rights associated with discoveries coming out of science. This motivated her to study towards a Master of Laws in Intellectual Property which she received through the WIPO-Queensland University of Technology Program. She has since worked in the area of innovation and Intellectual Property with Cambia, while holding positions in research in the Biological Sciences with Queensland Universities.
