Cambridge Reproduction


For my Part II project last year, I did a dissertation supervised by Professor Martin Johnson entitled “Adapting the 14-day rule for embryo research to encompass evolving technologies”.

This paper has now been accepted by ‘Reproductive Biomedicine & Society Online’ for publication shortly.

Additionally, I submitted a shortened version of this dissertation to the SRF Stewart Rhind Science Writing prize, and it won. Therefore, I attended Fertility 2020 this month in Edinburgh to receive my prize.

As a medical student, I’m really interested in a career in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, with an interest in fertility and IVF. For my student-selected project this year that begins in February 2020, I’m doing a project with Dr Jane MacDougall at Cambridge IVF about frozen embryo replacement and the impact on the incidence of pre-eclampsia and birth weight.

I’m also current co-President of Cambridge University Women in Science Society, a new society working to empower and inspire more women into male-dominated fields of STEM.
