Research Associate Biochemistry & Systems Biology


Personal Statement

I am originally from Malta, read for my PhD with Prof Kell in Manchester, and have now moved to the vibrant city of Liverpool, joining the wonderful team at the Biosciences Building as a Research Associate. Our research group focuses on determining which transporters are used by drugs and other substrates to enter and exit the cells, comparing proteomic expression profiles of cell lines, and their rate of uptake of substances from human serum, culture media, and other uptake buffers supplemented with compounds or drugs.

I have worked within the pharmaceutical and private sectors, but nothing compares to academia and being part of such an exciting and innovative research project!
