In Training

SRI provides an ideal forum for young investigators to present the results of their research endeavors, in both oral and poster format, to a wide audience of peers and established colleagues, it generates an environment where critical but informal feedback is fostered, where collaborative partnerships are made, and where networking and interaction flourishes.

In Training Members are a crucial part of the Society, and during the 2013 Strategic Planning Retreat, it was determined that a stronger emphasis be put on In-Training Members. Currently, various ideas and plans are being discussed and implemented in order to create a Society which focuses on its younger members. Stay tuned as these plans and ideas progress!

In my research I seek to understand how the anatomical organization and developmental plasticity of the uterus influences its immunological and inflammatory properties, with implications for reproductive and women’s health. Currently I serve as ad hoc Board Member and chair of the ITMC, leading several exciting new initiatives to facilitate interaction and mentorship among trainees in reproductive research. I like to share experience with colleagues around the globe, so let’s get connected!

My research focuses on the identification of surface markers for endometrial stem cells and bone marrow-derived cells within the uterus, and on developing cell replacement therapies using endometrial stem cells. I have served as a member of the ITMC in SRI since 2014. Through Connection Corners, I would like to meet with young investigators from all around the world to share ideas and garner inspiration, as well as with senior members to improve women's health worldwide.

My research interest is endometrial biology and implantation and I utilize molecular and cellular techniques to understand normal endometrial physiology to inform how disruptions in gene regulation and signaling may contribute to infertility and pregnancy complications. As an in-training member beginning to transition to independence, I hope to contribute to SRI by providing insight to other in-training members and to learn from those with established careers in reproductive biology.

I am a trainee in Obstetrics & Gynaecology in London. My PhD is on “Can we treat congenital blood disorder by transplantation of stem cells, gene therapy to the fetus” and I am currently writing up my thesis. My focus in reproductive research is fetal stem cells and prenatal gene therapy. Through the ITMC committee I would like to inspire early career investigators to join the SRI, share their ideas, collaborate and progress through research not only during the academic meeting but throughout the year.

I am currently working as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada. I obtained my PhD degree in 2014 at the University of Groningen, the Netherlands. My current focus in reproductive research is on the role of placental circulating factors on development of vascular dysfunction in preeclampsia. I would like to contribute to the ITMC by enhancing the focus on young investigators within the SRI. I would like to get young investigators involved in their society, to assist them in expanding their network, and to explore their future (scientific) career paths. I am also looking forward to getting to know my fellow early career scientists!
