During Himani’s time at the University of Nottingham she undertook two independent research projects. Her final year BSc project was focused on the mediator complex, and specifically the relationship between the MED12 and MED13 subunits with the MAPK cascade. Her master’s year project focused on ALS, and specific patient mutations identified in the adaptor protein, p62.
During her Biochemistry of Cancer module, and her CRUK fundraising efforts via the ‘Sugar-free February’ event her passion for cancer research developed and fuelled her search for cancer research related PhD projects.
In addition to her previous research experience, Himani has strengthened both her verbal, and written science communication skills throughout her degree.
