Dr Jennifer Hutchison is a Postdoctoral researcher in the Testis Development and Male Germ Cell Biology laboratory, led by Professor Kate Loveland.
Jennifer completed her Bachelor of Science (Honours) in 2016 at Te Herenga Waka, Victoria University of Wellington. Her honours project focussed on oocyte secreted factors and their interactions with granulosa cells with the supervision of Associate Professor Janet Pitman.
In 2021, primarily supervised by Professor Lois Salamonsen, Jennifer completed her PhD studies focussing on obesity associated infertility, and the effect of Advanced Glycation Endproducts on maternal-fetal interactions.
Currently her work  investigates Activin A and its involvement in fertility.
