Miss Melanie Seaton
I am a first year PhD Cancer Sciences student at the Manchester Cancer Research Centre developing cellular micromotors to improve management of ovarian cancer. I graduated from The University of Manchester in 2019 with a first class MSci Pharmacology degree.
I am pursuing my dream career of working in cancer research to develop improved methods of detection and treatment for one of the world's deadliest diseases. I joined Dr. Christine Schmidt’s lab at the Manchester Cancer Research Centre in 2019 to begin my PhD project, developing cellular micromotors for improved management of ovarian cancer. Prior to this I obtained a first class integrated Master’s degree in Pharmacology from The University of Manchester in 2019. For my final year project I worked in Prof. Stuart Allan’s lab investigating the mechanisms of inflammation in vascular dementia.
As someone passionate about social responsibility, I am a member of the Oglesby Cancer Research Building's Green Impact Team. I have also previously volunteered on the university campus at a student-run charity shop.
I graduated from The University of Manchester in summer 2019 with a first-class integrated Master's degree in Pharmacology. During this time I also gained a personal Home Office licence for mice and rats.
