My name is Hannah Stewart, and I am a current MPhil student at QUT. I obtained my Bachelor of Biomedical Science from QUT where I majored in human physiology. From this, I gained clinical experience in a 10-week placement with GenesisCare Cardiology and did a brief exchange to Hai Duong Medical Technical University (HMTU) in Vietnam.
In 2022, I commenced my Master of Philosophy with Associate Professor Larisa Haupt and Dr Rachel Okolicsanyi in the Stem Cell and Neurogenesis Group at the Genomics Research Centre in Kelvin Grove. Within my masters, I aim to investigate the effects of brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and platelet derived growth factor (PDGF) on Wnt Signalling in 3D human neural stem cell models.
