Danis Thomas is a graduate from King’s College London where he undertook his degree in MSci Biochemistry (Hons). His commitment to start a career in research stems from the challenging and enjoyable lab projects that he worked on in this time. These included studying the activation of caspase-2 in neonatal hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy in the lab of Dr. Claire Thornton and investigating RUNX2 and its role in DNA damage response in vascular smooth muscle cells in Prof. Catherine Shanahan’s Lab. His current interests lie in investigating the link between centrosomes and the cell cycle in different tissue types using cell and molecular biology approaches.
