Dorothea Stark

Medical Student

Dorothea is a medical student at Worcester College undertaking a research project in Professor MacLaren's laboratory to evaluate RNA editing strategies for the treatment of CRB1-associated retinopathy. After her first year of medical school, Dorothea was part of a mobile clinic hiking between remote villages in the Indian Himalayas, where she first became interested in finding new ways to treat retinal diseases, which are commonly seen at such high altitude. Outside of medicine she enjoys mountaineering, wild-swimming and rowing.
