Why did you choose Hudson Institute and your research group?

I completed my Bachelor of Biomedical Sciences (Honours) at the Implantation and Placental Development Lab at Hudson Institute of Medical Research, and absolutely fell in love with biomedical research! Throughout my undergraduate degree, I was always fascinated by the seemingly miraculous process of pregnancy and my Honours year really cemented my passion for research in reproductive biology. The world class facilities, staff and partnerships here at Hudson Institute of Medical Research are unmatched. I have also been graced with the unwavering support and guidance of my supervisors and research group, enabling me to kick-start my career as a budding researcher.
