Kathryn BalmannoKathy comes from Sarf London and spent 7 years at the Institute of Cancer Research in Sutton before moving to the Cancer Research Unit at The University of Newcastle Upon Tyne. During this time she completed a part time degree in Cell and Molecular Biology and an MPhil by research, working on various aspects of anti-cancer drug development. Kathy joined the Cook laboratory in 1997 as its founder member! She has worked on a range of projects and is interested in how nutritional cues integrate with growth factor signalling pathways to control cell survival and cell proliferation. Kathy’s outside interests include jogging, reading, music and film.
