What has been your career path so far?

I started my career at the University of Sheffield, which is where I studied for my PhD. I was researching how damage in our DNA may lead to neurodegenerative diseases. Because these diseases are caused by high levels of DNA damage, these patients are also at heightened risk of developing cancer. After being awarded my PhD, I came to work as a post-doctoral researcher at the Breast Cancer Now Research Centre at The Institute of Cancer Research.

What has been your career path so far?

I’d say my career started at the University of Manchester where I completed a degree in Biochemistry. I then went to Imperial College London to study a Masters in Cancer Biology, before moving to Cambridge where I completed my PhD at the Medical Research Council Cancer Unit in 2017.
