Wellcome Trust PhD Student Cohort 2018
I completed my undergraduate degree in Developmental Biology at the University of Manchester, where I developed an interest in the role of physical cues in regulating cell fate. I then spent a year working as a publishing assistant at the Nature Publishing Group. Finally, I studied for an MPhil in Biological Sciences at the University of Cambridge, during which I further pursued my interest in the cellular interactions that occur in response to injury using a mouse model that allows for lineage tracing of a specific pulmonary mesenchymal cell type.
The broad scope of research being conducted at King’s College with a strong emphasis on translational research was the most compelling factor for me in choosing this PhD Programme. My first rotation project will be in the lab of Dr Niwa Ali investigating immune cell-stem cell interactions in regenerative medicine and cancer.
