Daisy Luff

Daisy graduated from the University of Cambridge in 2014 with a BA and Master of Natural Sciences degree, specialising in biochemistry. Her early undergraduate research investigated the molecular basis of integrin binding to collagen in the lab of Professor R Farndale. In 2013 she undertook a summer studentship with Professor D Carling at the MRC CSC in London investigating the role of AMPK in prostate cancer. Her subsequent masters research focused on identifying LRRK2 binding partners in the lab of Professor N Gay at the Department of Biochemistry. Daisy's current research at the Babraham Institute aims to elucidate the molecular mechanisms underlying PI3K p110 isoform-specific roles in lymphocytes.
