Stacey Walters represents WIT from a purely “on the bench” scientific approach. She studied at undergraduate level at Sydney’s Institute of Technology and has recently completed her post graduate studies with the school of medicine at the University of New South Wales (Sydney Australia). Stacey began her career in transplantation in 1996 under the direction of Professor Richard Allen and Professor Jeremy Chapman at the National Pancreas Transplant Unit at Westmead Hospital, Sydney Australia. Her main interests were in xenotransplantation and islet transplantation. Following this she came under the direction of Professor Phillip O’Connell and became an integral part of a small team of researchers and clinicians that set up the first successful human islet transplants in Australia. In 2004 she was asked to join Associate Professor Shane Grey’s transplant immunology lab at Sydney’s Garvan Institute. Here she works on various projects of islet transplantation and also manages a lab of 8 researchers. Stacey has won various awards during her career:
