She studied as an undergraduate in Medicine at Newnham College, University of Cambridge and Imperial College London, before qualifying as a junior doctor and undertaking specialist professional training in Genitourinary and HIV Medicine.
She is the clinical Principle Investigator across the diverse portfolio of vaccine studies at the Imperial NIHR Clinical Research Facility http://imperial.crf.nihr.ac.uk/. Working closely with Professor Robin Shattock in the Department of Infectious Disease, this work involves the crucial early-stage development of potential vaccines against pathogens such as HIV and chlamydia and includes first-in-man studies of potential vaccines.
