Having obtained a BSc and MChem in Chemistry (class I) at the University of Leeds, I completed a PhD in Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine at the doctoral training centre (DTC) between the universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York under the supervision of Profs Eileen Ingham and John Fisher. During my PhD project, entitled 'mechanotransduction of multipotential mesenchymal stromal cells', I investigated the impact of uniaxial strain on the differentiation of MSC, as measured by qPCR, using a custom built bioreactor. Since completion of my PhD, I have been working in collaboration with UCL and Biovault Technical Ltd, a leading human tissue bank based in Plymouth (UK), on a knowledge transfer project concerning the bioprocessing of umbilical cord derived MSC (UCT-MSC).
Research Themes
Research Summary
In my current post, I am working on a collaborative knowledge transfer project (KTP) between UCL and Biovault Technical Ltd (Plymouth) to devise methodologies for the expansion of clinically-relevant numbers of umbilical cord tissue (UCT) derived MSC. This project aims to develop an end-to-end bioprocess for the production of UCT-MSC for cell therapy and research applications that is robust to input tissue variation using microcarrier and bioreactor technologies. As such, factors of interest include the impact of tissue transportation aspects, donor variability, culture media, culture surfaces and bioreactor parameters on the viability and functionality of bioprocessed UCT-MSC.
