  • Laboratory Manager

Biography: I joined Professor Matthias Marti‘s group as lab manager in 2018. Before moving to the department of Parasitology, I was a lab manager and research assistant in Professor Martin Allday’s group in Department of Virology, Imperial College, London for 24 years. The lab’s main interest was the role of the Epstein Barr Virus in the development of human malignancies. During this time, I gained a wealth of technical experience in cell biology protein biochemistry and the generation Recombinant Viruses. Prior to this, I worked as a research assistant at Beatson Institute for Cancer Research Glasgow and in Department of Dermatology, University of Glasgow. As a student I studied Biology at the University of Strathclyde and went on to complete a MSc in Biochemistry and Molecular biology at the University of Dundee.

Role: My main role is to ensure the efficient running of the laboratory and associated areas, including the GBRC CL3 suites as well as carrying out administrative duties and overseeing health and safety management. When required, I also provide technical support to researchers.
