I joined the Clinical Trials Research Unit in October 2019 as a Trials Support Officer. Prior to joining the CTRU, I completed a Masters in Biology (2017) at the University of Sheffield, which primarily focussed on an independent research project based on detecting disease resistance in plants by multispectral imaging. For the next two years I went on to work as a laboratory assistant; most recently as a Medical Laboratory Assistant at Hallamshire Hospital Cytology department.
