Katie Beirns

PhD Student

Katie completed her undergraduate degree in medical biochemistry from the University of Leeds with her final year project investigating novel pathways in non-canonical Hedgehog signalling. Following this Katie has recently completed a Master’s degree at the University of Manchester, conducting a research project aiming to characterise the collagen VI alpha 3 chain. This involved biophysical studies using small angle X-ray scattering at Diamond Light Source and investigating protein-protein interactions using affinity purification-mass spectrometry. Katie is looking forward to exploring further research techniques within the various themes at the Franklin.
