Graduate Teaching Assistant 

Overview

Following completion of my BSc in Biomedical Sciences at the University of Manchester, including one year industrial experience in Investigative and Translational Pathology at AstraZeneca UK, I then undertook a PhD in Immunology under the supervision of Professor Andrew MacDonald, and I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the same laboratory.

My specific research interests lie in the field of cancer immunotherapy, and my research aims to elucidate the mechanism by which a novel mycobacterial co-therapy, IMM-101, enhances tumour cell killing and prolongs surivival in patients with advanced pancreatic (and other) cancers.  Specifically, this rearch aims to discover the following:

  • What immune cell types are preferentially activated by IMM-101 both local and distal to the injection site?
  • By what mechanism is the local immune reaction translated to a systemic immune response?
  • Does IMM-101 enhance tumour immune cell infiltration?
