PhD candidate, University of Leicester

I have just started a 4 year PhD program with the University of Leicester as my home institution (2015-2019). My research will aim to explore unidentified regulators of the RAS-MAPK pathway which plays a major role in cell proliferation (and if de-regulated, cancer).

In 2015 I completed a Masters degree entitled 'Cancer Cell and Molecular Biology' at the University of Leicester (2015-2016).

My undergraduate degree, in Biological Sciences, was again at the University of Leicester (2011-2014).

Recently I have developed a great interest in communicating scientific concepts to the public. As a result of this I started a three month placement at the University of Leicester Press Office which has provided me with an outlet to communicate science to the public.
