Jane Moran is the Cooperative Research Centre's Program Leader for Impact Management Research. Jane has worked in the Department of Primary industries (Victoria) for over 25 years on plant health research and is the Deputy Research Director Bioprotection. Her career began as technical assistant, and then following part-time study, she obtained a research position in plant virology.


Jane has 20 years experience devising control strategies for plant viruses by developing diagnostic tools for their detection and using these tools to study how viruses behave in the environment. During that time she was also involved in projects in the biosecurity area which became my major focus for the last ten years.


Her current portfolio of responsibility crosses over both plant and animal biosecurity and she has a special interest in the development of the National Plant Diagnostic Network.
