On returning to Leeds Tom completed his final year lab project researching the effect of antioxidant system inhibitors in cancers of the brain and nervous system. Tom then joined the Nanomedicine Lab as a PhD student funded by the EPSRC & MRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Regenerative Medicine at the University of Manchester. His PhD project investigated in vivo cell reprogramming as a strategy to enhance tissue repair and regeneration. Tom is currently a post-doctoral research associate funded by an EPSRC centre-to-centre grant and is investigating the application of 2D nanomaterials for cancer immunotherapy.
