Michelle completed a B.Med.Sc (Hons) majoring in molecular biology at The University of Sydney, Australia (2002). After working in the laboratory of Professor Doug Higgs at the MRC Haematology Unit, Oxford, UK, she returned to The University of Sydney to complete her PhD studies (2004-2008), for which she was awarded a Cancer Institute of NSW Research Scholar Award. Michelle then joined the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute as a post-doctoral researcher to study epigenetic control of gene regulation in the laboratory of Professor Catherine Suter before taking up an RCUK Academic Fellowship in Professor Vardhman Rakyan’s laboratory, Blizard Institute, London, UK. As a post-doctoral researcher, she expanded her interest in the role of epigenetic mechanisms as mediators of gene-environment interactions.
