Equipment & Techniques
Following on from a degree in Biotechnology, I completed a PhD in Pharmacology (Downing College) and worked for 11 years in the field of Huntington?s disease (HD). My research focused on understanding the mechanisms underlying neurodegeneration and abnormal behaviour in HD. I left the bench in December 2011 and joined Cambridge Neuroscience. Cambridge Neuroscience is an Interdisciplinary Research Centre within the University of Cambridge connecting >800 researchers across the University, who are involved with research into the nervous system. My position as Cambridge Neuroscience Strategic Manager involves working with academics from across the University to support the interdisciplinary scientific community in neuroscience. This involves workshops, seminars, facilitating introductions and external interactions, an interactive website, communications and public engagement.
