I completed my undergraduate studies in Chemistry in 2016, and became interested in using analytical techniques to study biological questions. My undergraduate research thesis involved the investigation of the role of human apoliproprotein E mutants in the development of lipoprotein glomerulopathy. In 2018 I completed an MSc in Molecular Biomedicine at the University of Athens Medical School/BSRC “Alexander Fleming”, undertaking two research rotations and a master’s thesis project titled “Studying the importance of a novel nuclear RNP (ribonucleoprotein complex) for tumour development and progression”.

I was fortunate to be awarded a PhD studentship funded by North West Cancer Research (NWCR) for a project which combines my interest in cancer biology and signalling biochemistry with my passion for mass spectrometry. My project title is “Cancer Proteomics: Deciphering the cellular targets of clinical protein kinase inhibitors”. I will be using proteomics and phospho-proteomics techniques to hopefully shed some light on the molecular mechanisms of drug resistance in cancer, utilising mass spectrometry to study the complex interactions that drive cancer adaptation. The project is jointly supervised by Professor Claire Eyers and Professor Pat Eyers.
