Senior Research Technician
Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology
I got my Biological Science degree in Italy, six months before coming to England. Since being here, I have completed a Masters degree in Stem Cell Biology at Nottingham University, where I have expanded my knowledge of molecular biology and refined my cloning and sub-cloning skills. This experience encouraged to push forward in research and in making the decision to move to Cambridge in order to enrol in a 4 year PhD programme in neuroscience.
During my PhD studies i was more involved in immunohistochemistry (IHC) and in situ hybridisation (ISH) in the mouse brain. After completing my PhD in 2011 I continued to work in the field of neuroscience at Takeda in Cambridge and a Research Scientist.
I have since felt led to follow a more technical career path and worked as a Senior Research lab technician at the institute of Neurology at UCL, where I looked after a very busy histology lab. This experience helped me to explore and improve my management skills as well as continuing to develop my IHC skills. From March 2014 I took on the position of Senior Research Lab Technician in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology where i have the chance to apply and expand upon my existing scientific knowledge.
