Profile

Marilyn graduated of the Australian National University and completed her PhD under the supervision of Hugh Tyndale-Biscoe. She subsequently held a Fulbright, postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Tennessee, a Ford Foundation Fellowship at the ARC Institute of Animal Genetics, University of Edinburgh before becoming a foundation member of staff of Murdoch University. She resigned her Associate Professor position to move to Monash University as a National Health and Medical Research Council Principal Research Fellow from 1982-1991. She was appointed to the Ian Potter Chair of Zoology and Head of Department at the University of Melbourne, a position she held from 1991-2003. She became a Laureate Professor of the University in 2002, and in 2003 was awarded a Federation Fellowship. She has received the Gottschalk Medal (Australian Academy of Science), the Mueller Medal (ANZAAS), the Gold Conservation Medal for 2000 of the Zoological Society of San Diego, and a 2015 Eureka prize for outstanding mentorship of young researchers. She received the Whitley Book award in 1987 with Hugh Tyndale-Biscoe for their textbook Reproductive Physiology of Marsupials. She was elected a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science in 1997, and a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Biology in 1998, was Chair of the Society for Reproductive Biology 1997-2000 and the Australian Antarctic Division’s Ethics Committee from1997-2003, and currently serves on the Prime Minister’s Science Prizes Committee.

Research

The central focus of research in my laboratory is to understand the control of reproduction and development in mammals. We study a wide range of mammals, from wallabies to women, but I have special interests in the Australian mammalian fauna, particularly marsupials and monotremes and the evolution of reproduction. Reproductive projects funded by the ARC we are currently conducting are on physiology and endocrinology of parturition, the uterine, hormonal and metabolic control of embryonic diapause, embryo culture, the lactational and seasonal control of breeding and biology of germ cells. We have a large NHMRC funded program on the developmental biology of sexual differentiation in marsupials and the genes and hormones that control male and female development. We also have an ARC and ARC SPIRT supported program on conservation and fertility control of macropodid marsupials.
