Joanne Durgan

Jo is a senior post-doc who holds a Marie Curie International Incoming Fellowship and a 2015 ‘For Women in Science Fellowship’ from L’Oreal, UNESCO and the Royal Society to support her work.
 
Jo studies entosis in cancer, combining biochemistry, cell biology, imaging and analysis of tumour sections, to investigate the mechanisms that drive cell cannibalism and assess its impact on tumour development.
