Dr Charlotte Ermine
BSc, MSc, PhD
Dr Charlotte Ermine obtained her PhD in 2017 from the University of Melbourne. She worked under the supervision of Professor Lachlan Thompson at The Florey, on the potential of brain regeneration after injury. She focused on the mechanisms regulating adult neurogenesis in rodent models of injury.
In early 2017, she started a postdoctoral position in the Dementia Research Team Grant led by Associate Professor Amy Brodtmann at The Florey, working on the evolution of rat brain volume and cognition up to 12 months following focal cortical ischemia.
In 2019, she started a collaboration with Professor Mark Parsons and Dr Andrew Bivard from the Royal Melbourne Hospital, working on a rodent model of Transient Ischemic Attack as a platform to test new pharmaceutical drugs for stroke.
After receiving a CASS foundation and a joint MRFF stem cell mission grant, she now works closely with Professor Clare Parish and Professor Lachlan Thompson to rebuild the brain after stroke, using stem cell therapy. They work closely with international pharmaceutical industry to translate their stem cell product into a viable treatment for stroke patients.
