Kerrie Morrison

Kerrie graduated from Aston University with a BSc in Cell and Molecular Biology with Professional Training in 2015. During her placement year she worked on an emerging technique using copolymers to extract and purify membrane proteins. This inspired her to continue this research into her final year project; investigating the effects of different copolymer variants in extracting membrane proteins. After graduating she worked at Asterand Bioscience, using in situ hybridisation and immunohistochemistry techniques for pre-clinical development of potential drug markers. In her spare time, she enjoys hiking, painting and travelling.
