Research Assistant in Gene Therapy
I obtained my undergraduate degree (MSci Biochemistry with Professional Placement) from the University of Birmingham in 2018. As part of this, I worked for one year on the yeast mitotic cohesin complex in the Nasmyth group at the University of Oxford. I also spent an additional five months working on the effects of Rtt103/CREPT on poly(A) site selection in both yeast and mammalian cells in the Grzechnik group at the University of Birmingham.
In 2018, I moved to Oxford to begin a research assistant position in the Gene Medicine Research group, looking at the use of lentiviral vectors for delivery of novel gene therapies to the lung. My main gene therapy area of interest is Cystic Fibrosis gene therapy.
