Pathway Journey

Investigating the role of oligodendrocyte TRPA1 channel in demyelinating disorders.


I completed the MSci Pharmacology with Professional Placement Year at King’s College London and spent my placement year at Oxford University.

I chose the DTP because it offered a lot of support throughout the PhD. The courses that are offered to develop academically and with transferable skills are really useful. I have also had the chance to meet many great people so far in my PhD!
