Dr Stephanie Trend completed her PhD at the University of Western Australia in 2015, where she studied preterm breast milk immune composition and anti-microbial activity in context of preterm infant sepsis. Her current research includes profiling immune cell populations in the blood of people with early multiple sclerosis (MS) with the aim to identify future targets for therapies, and investigating the benefits of UVB phototherapy in preventing disease relapses.

In 2019 Dr Trend was appointed as the MSWA Research Fellow at the Perron Institute for Neurological and Translational Sciences and an Honorary Research Associate at Telethon Kids Institute. Dr Trend is currently leading an MSRA-funded project to investigate the role of antibodies in driving inflammation in MS.
