During my undergraduate degree in Biomedicine at the University of Newcastle, I first came in contact with the fascinating topic of regenerative medicine. In order to pursue this scientific interest I continued with my research with a Masters by research in stem cells and regenerative medicine at Newcastle. During that time I fist encountered Mesenchymal Stem Cell derived Extracellular Vesicles with Dr Xiao Nong Wang.
In October 2018 I joined the Division of Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery as a PhD student working on bone marrow derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells and their extracellular vesicles.
