Our BRC PhD students hosted a takeover on the Guy’s and St Thomas’ Research Twitter account – @GSTTResearch. On Friday 21 August, the team shared photos of themselves and talked about what they are studying. Here’s a summary of what they said during the day.
Our @NIHRResearch BRC supports a number of training courses including our #PhD studentship. Today, our PhD students are taking over our account to give you an idea of what they’re working on. First up is Helen from @kingsdentistry Centre for Host-Microbiome Interactions.
Next we have Angel Menendez Vazquez who is in the first year of his PhD in the @KCLImmunoMicro Department of Inflammation Biology.He is looking at inflammatory diseases, particularly #asthma.
Meet Alice from the @kingsmedicine Randall Centre for Cell and Molecular Biophysics. She’s just about to upgrade her MRes to a PhD.
Enjoy your lunch break by learning about Mahedah and her work at @CSCRM. She’s currently in the first year of her PhD. We spoke to Mahedah earlier this year about how she continued her work during lockdown bit.ly/researchlockdown.
Say hello to @TomlinsonGAS who is at the @kingsmedicine Department of Medical and Molecular Genetics in the process of finishing his #masters and upgrading to a #PhD. His work is looking at predicting #heartdisease, so that patients can get the right treatment quickly.
Lilli is in the first year of her PhD in #WomensHealth, looking at a condition called Fetal Growth Restriction with the aim of predicting and preventing stillbirths. She’s currently working in the @kingsmedicine Department of Medical and Molecular Genetics.
Our final student of the day, Roman, is at the @CSCRM and is moving onto his PhD shortly. Thank you to all of our students and we look forward to seeing what you do next!
