I obtained my PhD in plant molecular biology from the University of Nottingham and have spent the past 30 years in science publishing. I've worked for various journals, including Nature and Trends in Biochemical Sciences, and also edited many books. I was the Executive Editor of FEBS Open Bio from its launch in 2011 until 2019.
I spent 40 years teaching and researching, and developed a particular interest in education and career development. I chaired the Education Committee and was Careers advisor for the UK Biochemical Society. In these roles, and my work with students at the University of Manchester, I realised how important it is for young scientists to recognise their skills and be able to "sell" themselves to potential employers (and grant awarding bodies). I now run CV support sessions for young scientists on behalf of the FEBS Education Committee, of which I was a founder member.
I'm a second-year Ph.D. student working on tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. interested in tissue engineering and biotechnologies as well as cancerology. I had a hand-on experience on many molecular, cell culture, IHC and staining techniques.
19th YSF Organizing Committee member. PhD student at Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry Polish Academy of Sciences, Poznań.
I love science, animals, volunteering, sports, juggling, metal music and crocheting.
