Courtney is a PhD candidate in the Cancer Treatment Toxicities Group at the University of Adelaide, supervised by Prof Joanne Bowen, Dr Hannah Wardill and Prof Marc Gladman. Her research is focussed on unveiling the molecular mechanisms underlying the development of cognitive impairment following cancer therapy.

My research is focussed on understanding the role of the microbiota-gut-brain axis in the development of cognitive impairment following cancer therapy, with a particular focus on exploring the association between changes to microbial composition, neuroinflammation and blood brain barrier damage as key mechanistic candidates.
