Mechanisms regulating the gut-liver axis during health and disease

My current work as a Project Scientist in Naiara Beraza’s group focuses on understanding mechanisms regulating the gut-liver axis during health and disease.

Previous to this, I undertook my PhD at the University of East Anglia and Quadram Institute researching how diets rich in broccoli could prevent prostate cancer progression, and gained a First Class Honours degree in Biochemistry (with a Year in Industry). During my degree, I was awarded the Royal Society of Biology Advanced Accreditation Top Project Award as was the graduate with the highest project mark in Biochemistry.
