Katherine Hammond

Research Assistant

After completing my undergraduate degree in Cells and Systems biology at Balliol College, I joined the Wade-Martins group as a Research assistant to get to grips with practical science before applying for my PhD. As a component of my undergraduate degree, I undertook a project to establish a human in vitro model of stroke using human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) and investigated the role of lysosomal calcium release in ischaemia/reperfusion induced cell death in our hiPSC stroke model. I am hoping to apply some of the hiPSC skills I developed to generate patient derived iPSC lines to investigate the ubiquitin system in Parkinson’s disease.
