Background:

After graduating from the University of Victoria, Canada with a B.Sc. in Biology/Psychology (with Distinction) and an M.Sc. in Human Molecular Genetics (Lieutenant Governor’s Silver Medal Winner), I began working as a research officer for the B.C. Ministry of Health (Canada), where I developed clinical practice guidelines for chronic diseases, such as hypertension and cardiovascular disease. I then pursued a PhD in Stem Cell Biology at the MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine in Edinburgh. My research focused on cell-fate programming in mammary gland stem and progenitor cells. Following on from my PhD, I undertook two post-doctoral fellowships (Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine- University of Oxford, and Department of Biology- University of St Andrews).
