I’m in my final year of studying Molecular Genetics BSc (Hons) at King’s College London, during my second year I developed an interest in early detection of cancer, specifically the use of liquid biopsies and biomarkers. From this I attended the ‘Black In Cancer’ conference where I presented a poster titled ‘On The Early detection of Leukaemia by identifying levels of ctDNA found in liquid biopsies’. I’m now in the midst of applying to masters programmes specifically in cancer, where I plan to expand on my wet lab skills and knowledge on cancer. I’m interning at UCLPartners where I will be joining the evaluation team to ease accessibility to healthcare. I’ve also applied to do a summer placement with the Black In Cancer mentorship programme and for the King’s Undergraduate Research Fellowship (KURF). I plan to attend The Early Detection of Cancer Conference in October!
