My PhD project is entitled “Investigating the origins and functions of NG2+ fibroblasts in skin homeostasis and disease”. I am centered in the Centre of Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine in Guy’s Tower.
I achieved a first class bachelors degree at Oxford Brookes University in Biology. Whilst there i was privileged to have my final year project included in the paper The evolution and expression of panarthropod frizzled genes. Frontiers of Ecology and Evolution, 3. After my bachelor’s degree I wanted to gain some experience in industry and so worked as a biochemist for Lab Services LTD, a veterinary diagnostic laboratory, for a year. After this i felt myself missing the excitement and challenges of academic research and so underwent a Masters degree at King’s College London. I achieved a distinction in Biomedical and Molecular Sciences Research MSc.
I chose the DTP due to the wide range of projects, seminars and workshops which are available and allow me to gain a wide range of skills and experience.
I like the social aspect of the programme – specifically being surrounded by a large cohort of like minded people who can offer help and support to each other.
