I am a Research Technician working with AbbVie on creating a model of fibrosis using Precision Cut Liver Slices.

I graduated from Newcastle University with a BSc (Hons) in Physiology in 2015. After enjoying my undergraduate project focused on the mutation of an amino acid carrier protein located in the renal proximal tubule of patients suffering from Cystinuria I decided to further my research knowledge by undertaking an MRes in Medical Sciences.

It was during my research project that I first started working in the NFRG with Dr. Lee Borthwick. I thoroughly enjoyed my project titled 'Understanding the role of IL-1 in Knee Joint Fibrosis' and this inspired me to apply for a technical position in the group. I work closely with my colleague Mark Bryan and in collaboration with AbbVie to create a model for liver fibrosis using Precision Cut Liver Slices.
