BSc (Hons) MSc
Ross completed his undergraduate degree in Genetics at the University of Leicester, followed by a Masters in Stem Cell Technologies, in which he graduated top of his class. His research projects investigated triggers of epithelial-mesenchymal transition in cancer and the impact of stem cell niche alterations on cancer potency. During his undergraduate degree he competed in iGEM (international Genetically Engineered Machine) – a prestigious international synthetic biology competition.
Ross is currently working as a research assistant in a collaborative project with OxStem Ocular. The goal of this project is the identification of small molecules that stimulate retinal precursor cells as novel therapies for retinopathies.
