About Melanie Seaton

I am a third year PhD candidate in Dr Christine Schmidt's lab, based in the Manchester Cancer Research Centre at The University of Manchester. My project aims to develop "spermbots" as cellular micromotors to detect and eradicate ovarian cancer at a much earlier stage than it is usually diagnosed. Outside of my lab work I organise networking and social events for my faculty's postgraduate researcher community, and I love to present and discuss my science with anyone who will listen!
