Before starting at the Franklin, Tia was residing in the Scottish Highlands, having graduated from the University of St Andrews with an Integrated Master’s in Biochemistry. During her studies, Tia completed a placement year at Sosei Heptares, successfully elucidating the novel structure of a G-protein coupled receptor. She expanded her laboratory skills when undertaking her Masters project in partnership with NuCana Plc, helping to uncover the mechanism of action of one of their ProTides in clear cell Renal Cell Carcinoma. Tia hopes to use her background in Structural Biology and Pathology to make headway in solving real world problems, combining, and expanding on techniques across multiple themes at the Franklin.
