Project: Assessing cell-specific vulnerability in ALS
Life in the Lab
Life in the lab is very variable. There are times when you have a lot of lab work and other times where you are on the computer doing a load of analysis or writing. Looking after stem cells is like babysitting millions of children, they require a lot of care and attention in order for them to grow up into mature cells that you are proud of! Once they reach a mature stage, I can run a load of different experiments on them to ascertain what is going wrong with them in ALS.
Life outside the Lab
I am a massive football fan and always enjoy watching my team Tottenham Hotspur thrash our local and insignificant rivals. Asides from this, I love to cook and dabble in a bit of climbing/bouldering every now and then.
