Nilay Kuscu

Postdoctoral Research Assistant

My educational journey began in Turkey with a bachelor’s degree with honours in Biology, followed by an MSc in Reproductive Biology, which further enhanced my expertise in the field. Subsequently, I completed my PhD in Histology and Embryology, with a primary focus on the evaluation of mouse preimplantation embryo metabolism. This research was conducted in collaboration with Harvard University in the United States.

Throughout my academic career, my research interests have predominantly revolved around embryo development and the intricate workings of both female and male reproductive systems.

In September 2022, I embarked on a new chapter in my academic journey as a postdoctoral research assistant. I joined the esteemed research group led by Professor Suzannah Williams at the Nuffield Department of Women’s and Reproductive Health. In my current role, I am dedicated to studying human ovarian function and exploring innovative approaches to fertility preservation. This position represents a continuation of my passion for reproductive biology, and I am excited to contribute to the advancement of knowledge in this critical field.
