MediaCentral Widget Placeholderhttps://mediacentral.ucl.ac.uk/Player/6IA3FIJ6I am currently a research student with the Division of Medicine at UCL. Prior to this, I had obtained a BSC in Biomedical Science and a MRes in Human Tissue Repair. I am presently a lecturer at a private Institution of Higher education where I teach students in their Foundation year. I am passionate about biomedicine which has motivated me to go into research in this discipline. I am also an avid supporter of the widening participation initiative in education which has influenced my choice of work. I am also a mother of two beautiful and smart teenage daughters.
