About

I am a Research Fellow in the laboratory of Professor Margaret Frame in the Cancer Research UK Edinburgh Centre, University of Edinburgh. My research develops and implements proteomic approaches to investigate mechanisms of cancer cell adhesion. I received my PhD in Biochemistry from the University of Manchester, where I studied cell adhesion in the research group of Professor Martin Humphries, and where I stayed to undertake postdoctoral work. Here, I developed methodologies for the isolation and proteomic analysis of integrin adhesion complexes, which led to the description of the first experimentally defined integrin proteomes and insight into the complexity of the molecular machinery of cell adhesion. Prior to my PhD, I studied Biochemistry at the University of Warwick, where I was awarded both Biochemistry Prizes and was selected to spend an Intercalated Year of my degree working at AstraZeneca. I am a Member of the Royal Society of Biology, the British Society for Proteome Research, the British Society for Matrix Biology, the British Society for Cell Biology and an Early Career Member of the Biochemical Society. I received the 2009 Early Career Investigator Award from the British Society for Proteome Research and the 2010 Young Investigator Award from the British Society for Matrix Biology. In 2013, I was awarded Chartered Biologist status by the Royal Society of Biology and Associate Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy.
