About me

Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the laboratory of Thomas Helleday

Education

2013 - PhD in Biochemistry, Genome Damage & Stability Centre, University of Sussex, UK

2008 - BSc (Hons) in Biochemistry, University of Manchester, UK

Research description

My research centres upon the interplay between DNA precursor metabolism and genome stability, and how this can be exploited to enhance existing cancer therapies. Currently, my research is focused upon the enzyme SAMHD1, which we identified as a barrier to the efficacy of several antimetabolite-based cancer therapies.
