The leading edge represents a space in time where communication collides. In the cell it is the front line. As a cell moves, its leading edge is the first to experience the new environment it is entering. Important molecules assemble in this crowded and rapidly changing space to receive, interpret and act upon the signals a cell is exposed to.
With this in mind I hope to emulate that space and collate interesting elements from the field in which I work and the realm I wish to enter.
I am a London based PhD student, with a passion for effective communication of science and sharing the scientific endeavour with anyone who will listen.
My interests in the lab centre on the dynamic collision of signals when cells are instructed to move. I’m borderline obsessed with the location of these very important instructions within a cell and hope to share that obsession with you.
In addition to my love of science I also enjoy the visual arts and music. I hope to combine some of this interest with the field of cell motility, which generates some beautiful images of life as art.
