MSc Student

I completed a BSc in Medical Biosciences at Imperial College London where my undergraduate thesis project involved designing and validating a panel of assays to assess the cytotoxicity and apoptotic mechanism of action of antibody-drug-conjugates with topoisomerase inhibitors. I am currently studying for an MSc in Integrated Immunology at the University of Oxford. I joined the Simões Group for my Master's research project during which I will be characterising the interactions between the human iPSC-derived macrophages and cardiac cells in a novel 3D cardiac organoid model of heart injury.
