Grace Lidgerwood received her PhD from the University of Melbourne in 2018. She is currently a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Department of Anatomy and Neuroscience, and an affiliate Postdoctoral Researcher of the Department of Surgery. Her research focuses on creating more complex pluripotent stem cell-derived models of neurodegeneration, including organoid and co-culturing methods with the aim of investigating the role of inflammation and amyloidosis in the onset and progression of various neurodegenerative disorders. Dr. Lidgerwood is a current recipient of the Jack Brockhoff Early Career Medical Research Grant, an affiliate Postdoctoral Fellow for the ARC Centre for Personalised Therapeutic Technologies (ARC CPTT) and the elected Chair of the Australian Society for Stem Cell Research (ASSCR) Early Career Researcher Committee.
