    Bachelor of Biomedical Science (Honours) in genetics, QUT

    Jessica O’Callaghan is completing a PhD investigating placental genes in small-for-gestational-age infants using -omics and bioinformatics.

    Jessica was motivated to undertake this research topic due to multiple preterm births within her family. She is also interested in elucidating many of the ‘unknowns’ in pregnancy complications. This research area allows her to combine her extensive bioinformatic skills in the fascinating areas of reproduction and pregnancy.
