I graduated from Imperial College London in 2012 with aBsc[Hons] in Pharmacology and Translational Medical Science.
I obtained a Master of Research (MRes) in Biomedical Sciences and Translational Medicine from the University of Liverpool in 2013. I carried out my MRes research in Dr. Dean Naisbitt’s lab in the MRC Centre for Drug Safety Science and I also stayed in this lab as a technician for an additional year. The Naisbitt lab group focus on the role of the adaptive immune system in drug-induced allergic reactions such as carbamazepine-induced hypersensitivity skin reactions.
I began my PhD at UEA in October 2014. My project title is “Development of a non-mammalian, preclinical screening tool for the prediction of drug-induced toxicity” and I work with Xenopus embryos in Dr. Grant Wheeler’s lab.
