Personal profile

Biography

Gina obtained her PhD from the University of Melbourne in 2015 and her PhD work examined the stem cell niche and oxidative response in placental stem cells.

She is a Research Fellow at the Amnion Cell Biology laboratory (Hudson Institute of Medical Research) headed by A/Prof Rebecca Lim who pioneered the first-in-human clinical trial of amniotic cells for babies with bronchopulmonary dysplasia. Her current research focuses on the clinical scale production of cell therapy products and bioengineering stem cells therapeutic effects.

Her research interests include stem cells, biomaterials, microRNA signalling, extracellular vesicles, and regenerative medicine.
