I started my PhD in October 2010 in the McKeating lab to investigate the role of stromal cells in hepatocellular HCV replication. The majority of reports study HCV infection of hepatoma derived cell lines or primary hepatocytes and fail to consider the complex microenvironment of the liver that contains many different cell types. Liver stromal cells include fibroblasts, epithelial cells and endothelial cells. My project will define liver stromal cell-hepatocyte interactions that regulate HCV replication.
Outside the lab I love cycling and taking my dog out for walks in the nearby fields and am hoping to combine the two to train her in bikejoring, which is basically her pulling me and the bike along and this can then become sledgejoring in the winter. I also love to design and sew dresses finishing them off with hand embroidery detail.
