Short Bio

Marnie obtained her PhD from The University of Sydney in 2005, after which she undertook postdoctoral studies at The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research. In 2010 Marnie established her own group at WEHI, continuing to work on how epigenetic silencing works at the molecular level i.e. how genes are switched on and switched off. Since 2017 Marnie has led a division of labs working on epigenetic control. Her work has been recognised by a series of awards, including The Australian Academy of Science Ruth Stephens Gani Medal in 2009, the L’Oreal Australia Women in Science fellowship in 2009, the Lorne Genome Women in Science award in 2015 and the 2021 Ross Crozier Medal from the Genetics Society of Australasia.
