Institute: Loughborough University and The University of Nottingham
I completed my undergraduate degree in Nutritional Biochemistry and from there moved into the stem cell field with an MSc in Stem Cell Technology. I completed my PhD at The University of Nottingham investigating magnetic targeting of stem cell therapies. Over this period I developed an interest in barriers to the effective production of emerging cell therapies. I am currently interested in the manufacturing of cell therapies and cost of good modelling. As part of this I am part of a collaborative EPSRC project investigating the challenges of manufacturing mesenchymal stem cells for cartilage therapy. This has led me to my current position as an EPSRC ETERM Landscape Fellow based at Loughborough University and The University of Nottingham investigating better ways to manufacture pluripotent stem cells.
