Meet our Founder
Dr Anushi (Kulasiri) Rajapaksa
My journey with Misti began at the tender age of 7, fueled by a profound fear of needles that made receiving even basic medical care a daunting challenge - for myself and my parents! It became evident that there were countless other children like me facing similar fears.
Over the past 15 years, my unwavering commitment to this cause has driven my career in R&D research. Building upon the foundation of my PhD, I dedicated a decade to addressing this problem as a senior researcher, generously funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council at Melbourne's esteemed Royal Children's Hospital, while being a mom to two wonderful children.
For the last 5 years, my focus has been on refining Misti's design and conducting rigorous pre-clinical testing to put an end to children's respiratory viruses and the discomfort they cause and safely breathe back health into households.
