Piotr Kwiatkowski

1+3 Student

I graduated from King’s College London in 2020 with a BSc (Hons) in Biochemistry. My final year project with Prof. Snezhana Oliferenko at the Francis Crick Institute investigated nuclear envelope remodelling during mitosis. During my studies I was also awarded a studentship to undertake a research project in the laboratory of Prof. Michael Malim working on cellular proteins involved in the modulation of HIV-1 infection. These experiences inspired me to purse a PhD and continue my career within medical research.  

I chose the MRC DTP because of the flexibility and training opportunities the course offers. Besides, given itworldwide reputation for excellence in research as well as the fact that I previously studied here, King’s was a natural choice for me.
