Personal profile

Biography

Web link: https://www.monash.edu/medicine/ccs/medicine-alfred/research/epidermal-development

Dr Carpinelli completed her PhD in 2006 at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research in Melbourne, where she studied the genes that regulate blood platelet production. She then spent six years characterising the genes that underlie hearing loss.  The latter part of this project was completed at the Murdoch Children's Research Institute.  In 2014 she moved to the Central Clinical School, Monash University, where she investigated the genes that control palate closure.  She is currently investigating the genes that mediate neural tube closure.  The neural tube forms in the 4th week post fertilisation to become the brain and spinal cord.  Failed neural tube closure underlies the birth defects spina bifida and anencephaly.
