John E Schjenken

Dr John Schjenken received his PhD from the University of Newcastle in 2011. He then undertook post-doctoral research within the laboratory of Professor Sarah Robertson at the Robinson Research Institute, University of Adelaide (2010-2019) focused on defining the molecular mechanisms that regulate female tract responses to seminal fluid, identifying novel seminal fluid signalling mediators and determining the impact of these mediators on pregnancy quality and offspring health. In 2019, he returned to the University of Newcastle in a dual role based between the laboratories of Professor Brett Nixon of the Priority Research Centre for Reproductive Science at the University of Newcastle, and Professor Sarah Robertson of the Robinson Research Institute at the University of Adelaide. Here, he aims to develop a research program in the broad area of immunology of reproduction focusing on understanding the physiological significance of paternal environmental exposures on male and female reproductive function.
