Our summer intern programme welcomes three recruits
We're delighted to welcome three recruits for our summer intern programme. Each recruit has been selected from the MSc course in Regenerative Medicine (Clinical and Industrial Delivery) run by Dr Paul Travers at the Scottish Centre for Regenerative Medicine.
Ishani did her undergraduate degree at the PES University of Bangalore, India, and has previously interned with Stempeutics Research Pvt Ltd in Bangalore. In the final year of her Masters, Ishani plans to pursue a PhD in cancer research at the end of her internship.
Ishani will be involved in a project to convert cells derived from human Gliomas into induced pluripotent stem cells to study the disease and its epigenetics.
Daniel originally conducted his training as a chemistry technician at Kreisberufsschulzentrum Ellwangen, Germany, before completing his Honours degree at the University of Edinburgh. Currently in the final year of his Masters, Daniel plans to pursue a PhD in Regenerative Medicine research after his internship.
Daniel will be working on novel methods of patient sample acquisition, ethical approval and primary culture as well as novel methods of reprogramming of cells.

Nicola did her undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences at the University of Edinburgh before starting a Master’s degree at the Scottish Centre for Regenerative Medicine. After her Masters, Nicola plans to take employment within the biotechnology industry.
Nicola's project involves the use of gene editing technologies to modify the genome of iPS cells to introduce or delete mutations that cause disease. Nicola will focus on the construction and testing of vector technologies.
We hope the experience and time spent with our team, working on the associated projects, will assist in the progression of future careers in life sciences for Ishani, Daniel and Nicola.
