Research Assistant working within the Screening Team.

I work within the screening team which aims to investigate drug sensitivity in different cancer types. My responsibilities include the culture and maintenance of cancer cell lines and organoids for use in CRISPR and drug sensitivity screens.

Previous to starting at Sanger, I completed a BSc in Biochemistry and Genetics and an MSc in Translational Oncology both at the University of Sheffield.
