I am a DPhil student funded by A*STAR Singapore under the National Science Scholarship. I am also affiliated with St Cross College. My DPhil project has led to the identification of a novel synthetic lethal gene interaction in breast cancer, providing a strong rationale for the targeting of a key kinase involved in centrosome biology and mitosis. Prior to this, I was in the p53 Lab Singapore investigating peptides that could reactivate the frequently mutated p53 tumour suppressor protein, supervised by Dr Walter Goh and Sir David Lane.
