Bronwen Foster

PhD student

Originally from Northern Ireland, Bronwen completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Sussex where she developed an interest in structural and molecular biology, as well as neuroscience. During this time, she attended a programme at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology as well as completing two research projects. These projects used transmission electron microscopy to focus on proteins such as amyloid-beta, apolipoprotein E and tau which are known to be involved in Alzheimer’s disease. Bronwen then undertook a Master’s in Neuroscience at King’s College London, where she completed a project analysing serial block face scanning electron microscopy images of mouse brain to look at the balance between excitation and inhibition in the hippocampus.
