Dr Amy Winship
Dr Amy Winship completed her PhD in 2015 at the Hudson Institute of Medical Research. During this time, she investigated cytokine and microRNA regulation of endometrial receptivity, embryo implantation and placental development. In 2016 she was awarded a Cancer Council Victoria Fellowship to examine a therapeutic strategy for cytokine-mediated endometrial cancer progression and spread. Amy relocated to the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute in 2017 after being awarded a NHMRC Peter Doherty Early Career Research Fellowship, to begin research with Dr Karla Hutt in the Ovarian Biology Laboratory. She is establishing an emerging reputation in the fields of ovarian biology and oncofertility; her current research is assessing the importance of DNA damage repair for oocyte quality, female fertility and offspring health. Furthermore, capitalising on her uterine and pregnancy expertise, she has recently established her own research program evaluating the impacts of cancer therapies on the uterus and subsequent pregnancy.
