Jacinta Kalisch-Smith

Postdoctoral Researcher, University of Oxford

I am a post-doctoral research scientist in Dr. Duncan Sparrow’s group at the University of Oxford. I obtained my PhD in Brisbane, Australia, investigating the impacts of periconceptional alcohol exposure on the early embryo, uterine environment and placental formation. My current position now investigates how other environmental exposures such as maternal iron deficiency can alter heart development and lead to conditions such as congenital heart defects.
