Project: Tissue specificity of VCAM-1+ endothelial cell derived extracellular vesicle following injury

Supervisors: Associate Professor Naveed Akbar, Professor Daniel Anthony


I obtained my BEng (Hons) in Chemical Engineering at University College London (UCL) before completing my MPhil in Biotechnology at the University of Cambridge.

My DPhil focuses on the interaction between organs and the immune system after vascular injury. I am particularly interested in endothelial cell-derived extracellular vesicles (EC-EVs), which are key actors in cell-to-cell communication and have been shown to mobilize and activate neutrophils from the spleen after acute myocardial infarction (AMI). My work focuses on AMI, stroke and traumatic brain injury in animal models in order to harness the characteristics of post-injury EC-EVs for clinical diagnosis.

Undergraduate degree: BEng in Chemical Engineering at UCL, followed by an MPhil in Biotechnology from the University of Cambridge

Studentship dates: 2023-2026
