Tristan Smith

Tristan graduated with a BSc in Cancer Biology and Immunology from the University of Bristol in 2013. His final year research project was looking for novel target genes for the WT1 transcription factor to better understand its role in development and tumorigenesis. Outside of the lab he enjoys swimming and the odd gin!
