Dr Monica Sen
Postdoctoral Research Associate
Monica obtained her MSc at King’s College London where she investigated the immune profile of severe aplastic anaemic stem cell transplant patients. She gained her PhD in Dr Lesley Smyth’s lab at the University of East London, where her research was focused on targeting antigen-presenting cells to promote transplantation tolerance. During her PhD, Monica worked in Professor Giovanna Lombardi’s lab at King’s College London, where she undertook research on the development of a GMP-compatible protocol focused on the isolation and expansion of human thymus-derived regulatory T cells. Monica is currently working as a postdoctoral research associate in Dr Niwa Ali’s lab at King’s College London, where her research is centred on using in vivo and in vitro models to explore immune and alveolar epithelial cell dynamics in early-life lung development.
