Associate Professor Wendy Ingman graduated from a PhD at the University of Adelaide in 2002. She conducted postdoctoral training as an NHMRC CJ Martin Fellow at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, USA, returning to Adelaide in 2005. In 2011, she was appointed an NBCF Early Career Fellow and THRF A/Prof of Breast Cancer Research, and established the Breast Biology and Cancer Unit which is part of the University of Adelaide and the Robinson Research Institute, based at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital. The overall goal of her research is to understand the biological mechanisms that underpin inflammatory breast diseases including cancer and mastitis, and develop strategies to reduce the incidence of these diseases. Her laboratory employs a variety of protocols using genetically modified mouse models and primary human breast culture techniques, many of which she has specifically developed in order to explore interactions between local immune cell populations, epithelium and stroma within the breast that affect disease susceptibility.
