Professor Eva (Evdokia) Dimitriadis, NHMRC Senior Research Fellow
- Honorary Fellow
Professor Eva (Evdokia) Dimitriadis is a member of the Centre for Reproductive Health.
After obtaining her Bachelor of Science in Melbourne, Professor Eva Dimitriadis gained eight years experience as a research assistant in Melbourne, Munich and Dublin before completing her PhD studies at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland. She undertook post-doctoral studies at the University of Dublin before returning to Australia to undertake research in reproductive biology at Prince Henry’s Institute, now Hudson Institute of Medical Research.
Prof Dimitriadis has a passion for understanding infertility, the factors that contribute to making the endometrium receptive to an implanting embryo and endometrial-trophoblast interactions during implantation. Her research program includes investigating non-invasive biomarkers of implantation potential. She has a strong focus on microRNA regulation of these processes and investigating novel sustained release targeted delivery options. A number of her projects have a clinical translational focus, and have moved into pre-clinical trials.
Prof Dimitriadis also has a strong interest in developing new non-hormonal contraceptives that also prevent sexually transmitted diseases and the development of novel treatments for endometrial cancer.
Prof Dimitriadis has international, national and industry collaborations including Monash IVF, the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research, Monash University, University of Melbourne, University of Tokyo, Commonwealth Serum Laboratories and the Karolinska Institutet in Sweden.
