Project: Post-translational regulation of inflammation: chemical tools to probe dynamic protein modification during caspase activation and pyroptosis


Before joining the ICB CDT in 2016 I graduated from Brasenose College, Oxford, with a Master of Chemistry. I completed my MRes in Chemical Biology with the CDT before progressing onto my PhD project, which is supervised by Professor Ed Tate and Dr Avinash Shenoy. In my project I am synthesising and using chemical probes to understand how an inflammatory type of cell death called pyroptosis is regulated.
