Biography

My interest in studying the Wnt signalling pathway developed during my undergraduate degree in Biomedical Sciences. I was fascinated by the involvement of this pathway in the development process of many organs and that it is still not yet fully understood. My undergraduate project was looking at this pathway in Polycystic kidney disease and the development process. Finding more and trying to understand this pathway, lead me to the decision of pursuing a PhD. I found that t I could look at this pathway in any diabetes too. Diabetes is a rising concern in both the developing and underdeveloped world and to research its implications by understanding the Wnt signalling pathway has further instilled my desire to keep moving forward and build the path of understanding and eventually eliminating pathway.
