Stuart Rushworth

Group Leader

I am the scientific group leader for molecular haematology research at Norwich Medical School, University of East Anglia, UK. I completed my bachelors degree at the University of Sunderland and my PhD at the University of Cambridge with a focus on immunology. I undertook post-doctoral training at the University of Cambridge and the University of East Anglia before setting up my own group in 2013.

Jamie Moore

PhD Student - Rosetrees Trust

I graduated in Bioscience at the University of Suffolk, after which I studied Cancer Biology at the University of Essex. My research is looking at the interactions between acute myeloid leukaemia and the bone marrow microenvironment, specifically I am interested in the the bone marrow macrophages and how they interact with this disease.

Aisha Jibril

PhD student - Big C

I graduated from Aston University with a degree in cell and molecular biology. I am a PhD student investigating the role of mitochondrial damage associated molecular patterns (DAMPs) in the bone marrow microenvironment in multiple myeloma. I hope to shed light on how these mitochondrial DAMPs are associated with the inflammatory microenvironment that is involved in multiple myeloma disease progression.
