Rita Alonaizan

BSc, MSc


DPhil student

I graduated with a BSc in Biomedical Sciences - Developmental Biology from University College London (UCL) where I completed a research project on zebrafish left-right asymmetry development in Dr. Masa Tada’s laboratory. I then completed my MSc in Clinical Embryology at the University of Oxford where I joined Dr. Karl Morten’s laboratory for a research project on induced pluripotent stem (IPS) cell metabolism.

In 2016, I started my DPhil in Prof. Carolyn Carr’s group researching cardiac progenitors and the use of miRNAs to enhance their survival and retention following transplantation in the infarcted heart.
