Jemma is passionate about helping women achieve healthy pregnancies and this starts at the beginning during embryo implantation. She undertook PhD studies at the University of Edinburgh and Post-Doctoral studies at Prince Henry’s Institute of Medical Research examining how the endometrium and the embryo communicate to achieve implantation. She has developed unique models to examine human embryo implantation to gain novel insights into this critical process.
She is now examining how an altered uterine environment in women with metabolic disorders may compromise implantation resulting in infertility and pregnancy complications. Jemma has used xCelligence real-time cell analysis for a plethora of purposes, from understanding how embryos implant to investigating novel treatments for skin wounds.
