Grace Lidgerwood's Profile Picture

Grace Lidgerwood


Grace Lidgerwood received her PhD from the University of Melbourne in 2018. During her PhD, she developed methods for differentiating iPSCs to retinal cell types for disease modelling and explored the role of endogenous signalling lipids and inflammation in retinal homeostasis.

Her current research, based in the Department of Anatomy & Neuroscience at the University of Melbourne, focusses on creating more complex hPSC-derived models of neurodegeneration, including organoid and co-culturing methods, bioengineered matrices and 3D printing.
Dr Lidgerwood is an affiliate Postdoctoral Fellow for the ARC Centre for Personalised Therapeutic Technologies (ARC CPTT), an Honorary Fellow of the Department of Surgery, and the Chair of the Early Career Researcher Committee, Australian Society for Stem Cell Research (ASSCR).
