Research Associate

Research Group Home Page: 

I am part of the Rosenfeld group and working on a project to design a clinical assay to detect methylation changes in circulating tumour DNA (ctDNA). I have completed my undergraduate in Medicine and have also practised in the clinics for a couple of years before moving to research and pursuing my passion in Epigenetics (heritable phenotype changes that do not involve changes in the DNA sequence). I have completed my MSc in biomedical sciences from the University of Bradford and my PhD from the John Van Geest Cancer Research Centre at Nottingham Trent University. Through my MSc and PhD qualifications, I have enhanced my epigenetics skills which I am currently employing to study methylation changes in ctDNA. As part of the group, I aim to develop multimodal assays that could be adopted in clinics and guide patient management.
