Jeyran joined National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre as Clinical Project Coordinator in 2018. Jeyran completed her bachelor of advance science (Honours) and PhD at the school of Biotechnology and Biomolecular Sciences at UNSW. 

Her PhD involved characterisation and identification of the mechanisms contributing to oncogene amplification in childhood cancer, particularly neuroblastoma and leukaemia. Additionally, she investigated novel combination therapies targeting the potential causative pathways and performed in vitro and in vivo experiments to evaluate the treatment efficacies and underlying mechanism. 

Following completion of PhD, Jeyran worked as research officer at Children`s Cancer Institute on characterising novel non-coding RNA in melanoma cells. Shortly after, she decided to pursue a career in clinical research to get a step closer to the patients and joined IQVIA (clinical research organisation) as Clinical Research Associate which involved 6 month of training program. During her time at IQVIA, Jeyran worked on multiple studies with new novel therapies to treat various disease such as flu, asthma, lupus, multiple sclerosis, kidney disease and prostate cancer and learned a great deal about conduct and operation of clinical trials.
