Gendie obtained her BSc (Hons) and PhD in Biochemistry from the University of Otago.  She then started her post-doctoral studies in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the University of Nottingham in the UK working with Professor Philip Baker where she studied the non-angiogenic roles of VEGF-A in trophoblast biology.  She then moved to the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario where she worked with Professor Charles Graham on the role of oxygen in regulation of trophoblast invasion.

In November 2002 she moved to Newcastle University to initially work with Professor Steve Robson and Dr Judith Bulmer on the functional role of uterine natural killer cells in early human pregnancy development.  She was promoted to lecturer in 2011 and has established her own research group which focuses on vascular development in the non-pregnant endometrium and regulation of spiral artery remodelling in early pregnancy, with a particular interest on the contribution of uterine leucocytes to these processes.
