I am a skilled scientist, detail-oriented worker, and excellent communicator.
I hold a first-class BSc in Biochemistry and Genetics from the University of Nottingham, during which I also earned the School of Life Sciences prize for the highest grade on my degree program. While studying I gained an excellent understanding of cell cycle control, gene regulation, and intracellular signalling pathways. I enjoyed learning about how disruption of these complex processes lead to disease – particularly cancer development. Even more interesting to me was how knowledge of these disrupted pathways informs development of new cancer treatments.
This interest led me to pursue an MSc in Cancer Research and Molecular Biomedicine at the University of Manchester. I spent my time in Manchester contributing to ongoing research into breast cancer circadian disruption. During my project, I was the first to explore the therapeutic potential of a small molecule targeted to the circadian clock in breast cancer cells.
Upon graduating with a Distinction in my MSc I joined Pharmora as a Scientist in 2023. So far, I have loved learning about the world of clinical development and have had the opportunity to assist the team in in various oncological trial projects. I am eager to continue expanding my skills in data review and medical writing as I continue in my career with Pharmora.
