Discover the unexpected parallels between women and rhinos in a captivating talk led by Associate Professor Suzannah Williams. Join us as Prof Williams unveils her innovative research approach, which transcends species boundaries to explore commonalities and develop fertility preservation techniques. Dr Lydia Coxon will then delve into the latest discoveries and advances in understanding period pain and its link to chronic pain.

What do women and rhinos have in common?

Suzannah Williams (Associate Professor)
Ovarian dysfunction can affect most species, including ourselves. This talk highlights the unusual research approach that Prof. Suzannah Williams uses to explore the commonalities across species, with the goal of managing fertility preservation. Specifically, Suzannah is developing and improving culture techniques aimed at understanding the interactions between follicles and eggs, such that fertility can be preserved in both humans and species at risk of extinction including the White Rhino.

Could period pain in adolescents be linked to chronic pain conditions in adults?

Lydia Coxon (Postdoctoral Researcher)
Period pain is often accepted as “normal” - but could it be linked to other chronic pain conditions? Dr Lydia Coxon is part of the RoADPain project team, trying to learn more about period pain in young people. This talk will focus on why we think period pain is important and how the RoADPain project could help us better understand chronic pain.
