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.

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.
