Personal profile


Dr. Jessica K. Mountford joined the Neuroecology group, within the School of Animal Biology in January 2013 as a post doctoral research scientist. Here she has focused on investigating genetic causes of a number of inherited retinal diseases alongside W/Prof David M. Hunt, with the aim to help identify those at risk of developing retinal disease.

Prior to moving to WA, she completed her undergraduate science degree at Monash University, majoring in immunology, pathology and virology, and later completing her honours and PhD. in the Thrombosis lab at the Australian Centre for Blood Diseases, located at the Alfred hospital, Melbourne. Her PhD. project focused on the investigation of a novel lipid kinase found to modulate the adhesive function of platelets, a pivotal component of thrombus development, capable of causing both heart attack and occlusive stroke.
