Understanding how a fertilized oocyte develops into a viable embryo, and then goes onto become a healthy individual has been my lifetime interest. I completed my BSc (Hons) and my PhD, under the supervision of Henry Leese, at the University of York in the UK.

Following a Fellowship at Harvard Medical School, in the laboratory of John Biggers, I moved to Monash Medical Centre to work with Alan Trounson. My work focused on the metabolism and physiology of the preimplantation mammalian embryo, which led to the development of culture systems capable of supporting the embryos of several mammalian species including the human, mouse, cow and sheep. This work also laid the foundations for the generation of the world’s first human embryonic stem cells. In 1997 I moved back to the USA to become the Scientific Director of the Colorado Centre for Reproductive Medicine, where I was able to undertake translational research and further develop our understanding of early human development. In 2007 I returned to Australia to take up the position of Chair of Zoology and have been the Head of Department since 2009.
