I graduated from Newcastle University in 2018 with an integrated Masters in Biomedical Sciences. After thoroughly enjoying lab work and the research aspect of my third year project, I decided to add the fourth year of study to my degree. My Masters project was entitled “The role of RPL5 phosphorylation in ribosome biogenesis and the regulation of the tumour suppressor p53”. I was able to develop a variety of practical skills and really enjoyed carrying out research as well as working in the lab.
This inspired me to apply for a position as a Research Technician in the Fibrosis group, and I’m excited to be working with Dr. Jack Leslie investigating the effect of targeting neutrophils in hepatocellular carcinoma.
