Briet Bjarkadottir

DPhil Student

I am a first year DPhil student at the Nuffield Department of Women's and Reproductive Health, supervised by Dr Suzannah Williams and Dr Sheila Lane.

My project focuses on the effect of chemotherapy on the primordial follicle pool, in addition to optimising and developing human ovarian tissue culture systems.

My project is funded by the Medical Sciences Division MRC-DTP and the Scatcherd European Scholarship. 

I completed a BSc in Molecular Biology and Biochemistry at the University of Iceland in 2015 and an MSc in Clinical Embryology at the University of Oxford in 2016, for which I received the Nikon prize for micromanipulation skills and a prize for best research project/dissertation. Following my MSc I worked as an embryologist at IVF klinikin Reykjavik, Iceland.
