Dr Eric Lee

Genetic Pathologist, FRCPA (Genetics)

Dr Eric Lee completed medical training at the University of New South Wales and underwent training in genetic pathology at Prince of Wales Hospital, Douglass Hanly Moir Pathology, and the Kinghorn Centre for Clinical Genomics. He attained his Fellowship of the Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia in 2018. He is a member of genetics advisory committees for the RCPA and RCPAQAP. Dr Lee is experienced in the development and interpretation of a wide range of molecular and cytogenetic tests.

Dr Nicole Martin

Chief Scientist Genetics

Dr Nicole Martin has a PhD in Cytogenetics (The Flinders University of SA) and a Fellowship from the Human Genetics Society of Australasia (FHGSA). She has worked as a Supervising Scientist in Cytogenetic laboratories in both the public (Queensland Health) and private sectors (Virtus Health) and is currently the Chief Scientist in Genetics for Virtus Diagnostics. With an interest in education, she has been active in teaching medical students in the old undergraduate medical course and the postgraduate medical course for the University of Queensland (Clinical Associate Professor UQ Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology). She also presents at GP master classes and registrar training run by the Queensland Fertility Group.

Her interests when in the public sector encompassed prenatal diagnosis, neonatology and dysmorphology. Now in the IVF industry, she has helped developed testing for then investigation of genetic causes of infertility, with the introduction of sperm FISH, NIPT and NGS gene panels.

Dr Sharyn Stock-Myer

Preimplantation Genetics Scientific Director

Dr Sharyn Stock-Myer has the pleasure of overseeing the group that assists couples and individuals to overcome genetic conditions to have healthy children. Having studied and worked in molecular genetics in New Zealand and Germany, preimplantation genetics was the perfect fit for her combined interest in genetics and desire to help others.  She was recruited to join the team at Virtus in 2002 (Melbourne IVF back then) and establish the programme for testing embryos for single gene mutations.  The PGT programme at Virtus has since helped thousands of people on their path to a healthy child.
