Dagmar Wilhelm

 

Dr Dagmar Wilhelm is a vertebrate developmental biologist with a background in molecular biology and cancer research, known internationally for her work on sex determination. The ultimate goal of her research is to understand the genetics of sex determination, gonad development, and reproduction, and how failure results in human disorders of sex development, infertility and testicular and ovarian cancer, using mouse as a model system.

Dagmar received her PhD in Cancer Biology at the German Cancer Research Centre, Heidelberg, Germany and completed her postdoctoral training with Prof Christoph Englert at the Research Centre Karlsruhe, Germany and Prof Peter Koopman at the Institute for Molecular Bioscience, Brisbane. After receiving a Career Development Award level II from the NHMRC she became a Laboratory head at the Institute for Molecular Bioscience at the University of Queensland. In 2011, Dagmar was awarded an ARC Future Fellowship and moved to the Department of Anatomy & Developmental Biology, Monash University, Melbourne. In November 2015, Dagmar moved with her laboratory to the University of Melbourne to take on a Senior lecturer position.
