Jennifer Walshe
Research Officer

Jennifer Walshe is a Research Officer at the Queensland Eye Institute in Brisbane, Australia. She received her BSc, MSc with First Class Honours and PhD degrees from the University of Auckland in New Zealand.

During Dr Walshe’s training she developed a keen interest in cellular and molecular biology. As a postdoctoral fellow (1996-2004) in Ivor Mason’s lab at the MRC Centre for Developmental Neurobiology, King’s College London, UK, she studied the roles of fibroblast growth factors in brain development using chick and zebrafish embryos as model organisms. She then moved to Nicholas Saunders’ lab in the Diamantina Institute, University of Queensland, Australia, where she investigated the requirements for glutathione peroxidases in preventing skin cancer development in mice.

Following a break from science for a few years, Dr Walshe was recruited to the Research Department at the Queensland Eye Institute to conduct basic and translational corneal biology research.
