Postdoc: Dr. Gbenga Eweoya, /

Department of Anatomical Sciences, University of Abuja. Nigeria. West Africa.

Dr.  Gbenga is presently a Senior Lecturer and the Ag. Head of Anatomical Sciences Department in University of Abuja, Nigeria. He has the following degrees: Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS), Master of Science (MSc) Anatomy, Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) Anatomy. His interest in Sexual and Reproductive Health made him to further his knowledge in this area and has acquired Certificates in Clinical HIV Management, Sexual, Reproductive Health and Gender Based Violence. He also had trainings in Family Planning and Diagnostic Ultrasound.

His area of specialization is Clinical Anatomy (Reproduction) and his research focus on Fertility. He is interested in reducing infertility problems in Nigeria which may be extended to other African countries.


Postdoc: Dr. Shruti Kane 

National Phenotypic Screening Centre, University of Dundee

Dr. Kane is a Post-doctoral screening scientist at the National Phenotypic Screening Centre, University of Dundee. She completed her Master’s in India followed by a PhD studying the genetic causes of male infertility at Abertay University, Dundee. Her post-doctoral research involves using cutting-edge robotics for high throughput screening of chemical compounds with non-hormonal contraceptive potential. In particular, she is developing sperm painting, an image-based technology that fingerprints the functional state of sperm cells using multiplexed fluorescent microscopy for contraceptive discovery.


PhD: Dr Hannan Al-Lamee /

Department of Women’s and Children’s Health, Centre for Women’s Health Research, Institute of Life Course, University of Liverpool, UK

Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, London, UK

Dr Hannan Al-Lamee is a specialist trainee in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in North West London, working at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. Hannan is a Member of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (MRCOG) and has an MBChB and MPhil from the University of Liverpool. She is currently writing up her PhD from the University of Liverpool which investigates endometrial receptivity and regeneration within the normal cycling endometrium and the endometrium from those with recurrent reproductive failure. In particular, her research focuses on the characterisation of human endometrial epithelial stem/progenitor cells. Hannan has a keen interest in human reproduction and has recently completed a clinical research fellowship at the Hewitt Fertility Centre. Her main research interests include the human endometrium, embryo implantation, recurrent pregnancy loss and recurrent implantation failure.


PhD: Miss Alex Shattock

Royal Veterinary College (RVC), UK

Alex is a final-year PhD student at the RVC, University of London. Her PhD is focused on improving the efficiency of assisted reproduction in dogs to expedite canine Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) translational research. She previously completed her BSc in Biomedical Science at the University of Birmingham and her MSc in Reproduction and Development at the University of Bristol.

Postdoc: Dr. Claire Stenhouse

Department of Animal Science, Pennsylvania State University, USA

Dr. Stenhouse is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Animal Science at Pennsylvania State University. She completed her BSc, MSc, and PhD at the University of Edinburgh. Her research utilises large animals (sheep and pigs) to investigate molecular signalling between the conceptus (fetus and associated placental membranes) and the endometrium during pregnancy recognition, implantation, and placentation. She is particularly interested in the regulation of placental mineral transport and the mechanisms regulating intrauterine growth restriction, with a goal of generating new knowledge to improve pregnancy success in both women and livestock.
