Dr. Jessica Warrington, Research Associate

Jess obtained her BSc degree in Anatomy & Human Biology at the University of Liverpool in 2013. She then completed an MSc degree in Biology which included a long-term research project (funded by the University of Liverpool) at the Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok, Thailand. She then went on to complete her PhD at the University of Sheffield funded by a Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Scholarship. Her research was based in the Department of Oncology and Metabolism and investigated the role of RAMP1, a G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) component, in prostate cancer and bone metastasis. During her PhD she also undertook a short-term lab placement at the University of Cambridge to learn high-throughput techniques commonly used to study GPCRs. Jess joined the Nanomedicine Lab in 2018 as a Research Associate and is also collaborating with the Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute to develop nanoparticle-based enrichment methods to enhance blood biomarker discovery in lung cancer. This project is funded by a Cancer Research UK (CRUK) Pioneer Award.
