Welcome to Pitch Your PhD – Shownotes
Season 1, Episode 12
Sex science in the community (of mice) with Dr Jarrod McKenna
In this episode of Pitch Your PhD, Dr Catherine Ball chats with Dr Jarrod McKenna on his recently submitted PhD research on early pregnancy and assisted reproduction on in spiny mouse – the only rodent with a menstrual cycle!
The reason we did that (the research) was to hopefully see that the embryos implant at the same time and in a similar way, and the uterus sort of prepares itself in a similar way to what we think happens in humans, because we don’t actually know exactly what happens in humans at the exact time the embryo implants, cause we’ve never seen it…
Jarrod has always known that everything he loves has science in it – but he did not know that he will go down the reproductive biology pathway.. let alone do a PhD on it.
