Emily Billinge

Lab Technician (SCRABEL)

 

My role in the team is as a laboratory technician in the Stem Cell Research And Bio-Engineering Lab (SCRABEL) as part of the Institute for Medical Sciences. As a lab technician some of my key roles are: acting as a health and safety co-ordinator, supporting research developments both in and out of the lab, ensuring maintenance and use of lab equipment, and helping students wherever possible.

Prior to this role I graduated with an undergraduate degree in Neuroscience with Pharmacology (2:1) from the University of Nottingham in 2012 and then undertook a PhD in in Analytical Chemistry at Loughborough University which I completed in 2015. The main aim of my PhD research was to generate proof-of-concept methods for the detection of clinically relevant proteins, for example, growth factors.

I am fascinated by biology as a whole, and am constantly in awe of pioneers who develop novel ways of manipulating or adapting biology to address clinical problems, and as such I am very pleased to be part of the team here in Medway working at the forefront of science and technology.
