Summer Student 2019: Abigail Wright

Abigail will develop and validate an all-human model of Parkinson’s disease to replace experiments on mice, rats, dogs and monkeys.


Summer Student 2019: Dylan McClurg

Dylan will develop an animal-free model to investigate how breast cancer can spread throughout the body and help to replace experiments on mice.


Summer Student 2019: Faris Osman

Faris will develop a novel detection method to replace antibodies in the diagnostic testing of HIV and help replace experiments on millions of animals worldwide – including hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits, goats, sheep, horses, mice and rats.


Summer Student 2019: Intisar Salah

Intisar will develop a non-invasive tool for detecting, monitoring and treating cancer, to help replace experiments on mice and other animals worldwide used to produce antibodies.


Summer Student 2019: James Philpott

James will develop a computational model to predict the psychoactivity of molecules affecting the central nervous system and help replace experiments on mice, rats, cats and monkeys.


Summer Student 2019: Josan Gandawijaya

Josan will edit human cells to understand the role of genes in autism and 3p deletion syndrome to help replace experiments on mice and rats.


Summer Student 2019: Katherine Bexley

Katherine will use human skin to investigate if she can speed up and improve the repair of human skin wounds and help replace experiments on mice and pigs in skin research.


Summer Student 2019: Kathryn Bailey

Kathryn will produce synthetic compounds to monitor microbial infections and Alzheimer’s disease and help replace experiments on millions of animals worldwide – including hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits, goats, sheep, horses, mice and rats.


Summer Student 2019: Keerthana Sasitharan

Keerthana will use artificial intelligence and human tumour samples to predict if oral cancer will spread, and to help replace experiments on mice.


Summer Student 2019: Nilab Haydare

Nilab will develop an animal-free model of the human eye to research inflammation and infection of the eye and help replace experiments on rabbits.


Summer Student 2019: Samantha Lindsay

Samantha will develop a human skin-wound and infection model to help replace experiments on pigs, mice and rats in skin disease research. 


Summer Student 2019: Zachary McNeill

Zachary will use non-invasive methods on human participants to improve the function of prosthetic hands and help replace invasive experiments on cats, dogs and rats.


Summer Student: Deyna Jenkins

Deyna will develop an animal free 3D cell model of human muscle contraction to help replace experiments on mice and rats in exercise related diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, obesity and heart disease.
