Season 3, Episode 1 - Photonics in reproduction

Updated: May 2, 2023


All the important links, repro news and guest bios from this month's episode


Dr Kylie Dunning

Dr Kylie Dunning leads the Reproductive Success team within the Robinson Research Institute and the School of Biomedicine.

Kylie is a reproductive biologist who aspires to use safe, cutting-edge, light-based technologies (also referred to as photonics) to better understand the biology that underpins successful development of the oocyte (egg) and early embryo. With one-in-six Australian couples struggling to start a family without medical intervention, Kylie is committed turning her laboratory discoveries into impact for these couples, engaging early and often with clinical experts to address the greatest clinical challenges.
