Dr. Kelsey Quinn began her scientific career in reproductive physiology with expertise in fetal-maternal communication during early pregnancy. Her background broadly ranges from studying implantation and placental development in large livestock such as sheep and cattle (doctoral research at New Mexico State University) to utilizing mouse models and human clinical samples (postdoctoral research at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill). Her previous research explored chemokine signaling and how G-protein coupled receptors and their corresponding ligands play a role in the maintenance of a healthy uterine state. Dr. Quinn has extensive experience in scientific writing and science communication, including receiving The Lalor Foundation Fellowship two years in a row and winning several scientific presentations and teaching awards. In her free time, she enjoys volunteering for a local non-profit animal rescue group, managing her small hobby farm, and spending time fishing with her husband.
