Katelyn Patatsos is a Research Assistant at the Murdoch Children's Research Institute, joining the Immune Development laboratory led by Prof Ed Stanley. Katelyn works as part of the Lung Disease team led by Dr Rhiannon Werder, exploring the cells of the lung (healthy and in disease) using human stem cell techniques.

Katelyn completed her Bachelor of Science (Biochemistry) at La Trobe University, and then an honours degree with Dr Christine Hawkins in the Department of Biochemistry and Genetics. The project explored the potential of using proteasome inhibitors in canine osteosarcoma, and was published in Veterinary and Comparative Oncology in 2018.

Following her university degrees, Katelyn worked as a Compounding Assistant in a Compounding Pharmacy, preparing custom medications under the supervision of a pharmacist. She also worked at Dorevitch Pathology, first as an Expeditor and then as a Laboratory Assistant.

In 2020, Katelyn took up a role as Research Assistant for Dr Rebecca Gentek in the Centre for Reproductive Health in the University of Edinburgh, using cre-lox mouse models to elucidate the ontogeny of immune cells in normal conditions and during pregnancy.
