Personal profile


I did my BSc in Biochemistry & Genetics (1994-1997) and my PhD (1997-2001) in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Leeds. I then worked as a post-doctoral research fellow firstly at the Cancer research UK Clinical centre, St James's Hospital in Leeds (2001-2005) and then at the Jack Birch Unit of Molecular Carcinogenesis, Department of Biology, University of York (2005-2008).
