Dr Michelle Johnson is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at The University of Leeds (UK) in the Women’s Health Research Group. She completed her BSc (Honours) in Biomedical Science in 2010 at De Montfort University, Leicester (UK), and went on to undertake her PhD at The Open University (UK) with a thesis entitled ‘Gastrointestinal appetite hormones change with maternal adaptations to pregnancy and lactation in the rat’, supervised by Dr Vicky Taylor and Dr Jill Saffrey. This PhD project broadly addressed the sex bias in the existing literature exploring the roles and effects of gut-derived appetite hormones. Dr Johnson currently works with Dr Nadia Gopichandran and Dr Nicolas Orsi in developing products to improve success rates of artificial reproduction in laboratory rodents (embryo transfer) and livestock (artificial insemination) with Ostara Biomedical.
