I have recently submitted a Thesis for my PhD on new treatments for neglected tropical diseases. I obtained my BSc in chemistry from Greenwich University, completing my studies as part of an apprenticeship with Novartis. I continued on as a scientific associate for Novartis, working on a variety of medicinal chemistry projects for 5 years before commencing my PhD. I have recently been appointed as a project leader for an oncology project at the Sussex Drug Discovery Centre that is focused on DNA damage response mechanisms.
