Dr. Sheila Ridner is the Martha Rivers Ingram Professor of Nursing at VUSN. She received her PhD in Nursing Science from Vanderbilt University in 2003 and completed her Postdoctoral Oncology Nursing Fellowship in 2005, also at Vanderbilt. 

Dr. Ridner is the Principal Investigator of the Vanderbilt University Lymphoedema Early Detection Clinical Trial, in which Macquarie University is the only participating university outside the US. We are contributing the highest number of trial subjects (400) to the total cohort of 1,100 women.
