Laurel Chandler

BSc (Hons)


Fight for Sight Scholar and DPhil Student

Whilst studying towards her First Class (Hons) BSc degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology at the University of Bath, Laurel joined the MRC Protein Phosphorylation and Ubiquitylation Unit in Dundee where she undertook research into the control of gene expression.

Her keen interest in translational molecular medicine led her to join Dr Kanmin Xue, Academic Clinical Lecturer at the Nuffield Laboratory of Ophthalmology, to undertake a DPhil project investigating innate immune responses to viral infection of the retina. Both Kanmin and Laurel work integrally within Professor Robert MacLaren's research team with the aim of developing effective gene therapy for inherited retinal diseases.
