Biography

I did my undergraduate BSc studies in Biology at the University of Sussex and the Université de Grenoble.  Following two and half years as a Research Assistant with Professor Potten at the Paterson Institute for Cancer Research, I studied the control of proliferation in the normal and neoplastic human mammary gland for my PhD at The University of Manchester (1995). Subsequently, I undertook post-doctoral training with Dr Liz Anderson in the Clinical Research Department of The Christie, Manchester. I returned to The University of Manchester as a Cancer Research UK Research Fellow in 2001, becoming a Group Leader in the Division of Cancer Studies based at the Paterson Institute for Cancer Research.  I am currently a Senior Lecturer in the Institute of Cancer Sciences based in the Paterson Building, University of Manchester.
