Emma Lingham

Research activity per year

Personal profile


Emma graduated as Dux from the Master of Clinical Embryology in 2012 and has trained and worked as a clinical embryologist since her graduation. In 2014, she won a joint tender to create an Embryology Training manual and logbook for embryologists and andrologists in Australia and New Zealand commissioned by Scientists in Reproductive Technology (SIRT) a sub-group representing the scientific membership of The Fertility Society of Australia. Emma became a committee member for SIRT in 2017 and has initiated and coordinated many educational meetings and conferences within the Australian embryology community. Emma’s strength in design and delivery of educational material has been apparent since her study days. In 2018, she took on teaching in the practical units and lecturing, with the aim of using her experience to enhance the transition for students from post-graduate study into IVF clinics. Emma was involved in the course restructure for 2019 and is responsible for much of the new educational material. Emma has taken on further unit coordination for both practical and theoretical units this year, and continues to create and design educational resources for MCE.
