Becky Csöndör

PhD Student

Becky graduated with an MSci in Biochemistry from the University of Southampton, where she cultivated a fascination for diseases of the ageing brain. In her final projects there, she utilised a range of spectroscopic methods to biophysically characterise both the structure and aggregation kinetics of human-derived amyloidogenic proteins in Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. During a summer placement with the Molecular and Cellular Biosciences group, she developed her understanding of these biophysical techniques by attempting to simulate the solid-state NMR spectra of tau amyloids under varying biological conditions in silico. Implementing structural biochemistry as a foundation for her knowledge, Becky is enthused to develop and integrate her research experience alongside the innovative approaches of the Franklin, transforming the lives of those living with degenerative conditions
