As part of my degree at the University of East Anglia (UEA), I am undertaking a year in industry project (August 2016-July 2017) to gain vital experience in research.
My current research is focused on recognition between carbohydrate and surface receptors such as C-type lectins and how this is essential for host defence and survival. Specifically considering how the role of autophagy is associated in C-type lectin signalling. I am working towards publication in collaboration with a colleague.
Previously, I have had experience working as a laboratory attendant at the John Innes Centre where I developed skills that I have used during my year in industry project.
I was awarded the biochemical society summer vacation studentship for 8 weeks of summer in 2016 which I conducted a research project in Nori Kawasaki’s Lab and successfully submitted the final report (see link) –https://www.scribd.com/document/327552985/SVS-Reports-2016
