KCL Coordinator

I'm a second year PhD student in the School of Biomedical Engineering and Imaging Sciences. My research tries to address the issue of not knowing where cells go after they have been administered to patients as cell therapies. Cell therapies are novel treatments and as such, their safety and efficaci...

'Beautiful Mind' Event Manager

I study how brains grow and mature. I am fascinated by interactions between nature and nurture, in particular how electrical activity impacts the growth of neurons. I hope to apply some of the insights resulting from my research to improve therapies for epilepsy syndromes affecting children. I love ...
