Biographical details

Jenn has contributed to the fields of applied research ethics and regulation, health sciences and medical research management and policy for over 20 years – including her appointments as Chair of the Metro South Human Research Ethics Committee, Princess Alexandra Hospital and Board member of the Australian Health Law and Bioethics Association. She is currently a member of the Medical Sciences Human Research Ethics Committee, Macquarie University and the Australasian Biospecimens Network_Oncology Group.

Currently a postdoctoral researcher at VELiM, University of Sydney Jenn is working with A/Professor Ian Kerridge on a multidisciplinary NHMRC funded collaborative project aimed at addressing the ethical-legal issues around the sustainability and utility of tissue banks via community engagement. Post PhD her research interests continue in emerging health law/regulation and research ethics responses to translational research around biobanks, particularly in relation to the disclosure of individual research results and incidental findings from genomic research; biopolitics, clinical trials and novel therapies; community engagement in science regulation and the impact of globalisation on biomedicine.
