Listen now to the first episode ‘Unheard of – The hidden voice of Endometriosis.’ A bold new podcast series co-hosted by DPhil students Danielle Perro and Magda Mareckova, it seeks answers to the biggest questions posed by the Endometriosis community.

What causes Endometriosis? Why can Endometriosis be so painful? Will there ever be a cure?  

A new short podcast series seeks answers to some of the biggest questions posed by the Endometriosis community, as set out by the James Lind Alliance.  

Danielle Perro and Magda Mareckova are DPhil students here in our department, studying Endometriosis. Danielle’s work explores ways that we can better characterise endometriosis-associated pain, while Magda is interested in understanding what role different cells play in endometriosis development. 

Raising Endometriosis awareness, talking about reproductive health and making science accessible to everyone is something they are both very passionate about. 

In this podcast series, they shed light on a very common, yet unheard of condition affecting 1 in 10 of those born with a uterus. The focus is learning more about the condition while elevating the voices that often go unheard – the voices of people with endometriosis and early-career specialists & researchers in the field.
