Ella Green is a Postdoctoral researcher in the Reproductive Immunology group, under the supervision of Prof. Sarah Robertson. Ella undertakes novel research in the field of reproductive biology, with a focus on the immunology of reproduction. Her vision is to discover new knowledge on the biological roles of immune cells in pregnancy and reproduction function by applying basic molecular and cellular immunology techniques to animal models of reproductive pathologies. Ella uses several experimental strategies including animal models, cellular biology, flow cytometry, and cell isolation and culture in her work.
Her specific focus is to determine the involvement of maternal T cell plasticity in normal pregnancy, and in fertility and pregnancy complications including preterm labour (PTL), intrauterine-growth restriction (IUGR) and luteal phase deficiency (LPD). The ultimate goal of this work is to promote translation of these research findings to improve reproductive outcomes in women.
