I graduated from the University of London and undertook a PhD at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital on Integrin expression in Osteoclasts.  Since graduation I have worked in academic laboratories in the USA and UK, focusing mostly on factors determining cell fate and differentiation – during development or disease.  I moved to Cambridge in 1996 to work on research projects at Addenbrooke’s Hospital Biomedical Campus.  The University has provided opportunities to conduct fundamental and more clinically based research.  Topics of study at the Addenbrooke’s have ranged from using ScFv technology to identify antibodies causing autoimmune thrombocytopaenia to the analysis of patient mutations associated with Disorders of Sex Development.  After leaving Anna Philpott’s group investigating post-translational modifications of bHLH transcription factors in 2019, I began working as a Senior Research Technician with Jussi Taipale in the Department of Biochemistry.  The laboratory is located downtown in the heart of the university research campus, an exciting place to work and carryout ground breaking research.
