MRes | BSc (Hons)
I am an MRes student specialising in ageing research, and a continuing DPhil student, supervised by Dr Ghada Alsaleh and Prof. Lynne Cox. I completed my Bachelors degree in Biomedical Genetics at Newcastle University, during which I worked on female reproductive ageing under the supervision of Prof. Mary Herbert. My MRes project investigates the role of autophagy in osteoarthritis, exploring the underlying age-related alterations leading to the disease development. My DPhil project will delve into the molecular and mechanistic age-related alterations that deteriorate the joints and lead to musculoskeletal diseases. Overall, my project aims to identify the underlying biological changes that develop with advanced age and cause musculoskeletal ageing.
