Erin Greaves obtained her PhD in 2009 in Developmental Biology from Leeds University. Erin carried out her postdoctoral training in (what was then) the MRC Human Reproductive Sciences Unit with Professor Philippa Saunders at Edinburgh University during which she developed an innovative mouse model of endometriosis. In 2014 she was awarded a prestigious MRC Career Development Award and in 2015 was appointed as a Principal Investigator at the MRC Centre for Reproductive Health, Edinburgh. Along with Philippa Saunders and Andrew Horne, Erin leads the research at EXPPECT Edinburgh, a Centre focusing on excellence in pelvic pain and endometriosis care and treatment. Erin’s research focuses on the pathophysiological processes that lead to endometriosis-associated pain, with a particular focus on the role of macrophages.
