Life Sciences Research for Lifelong Health

Richard Odle

Richard grew up in Medway and found the prospect of excessive coffee consumption a suitable incentive for studying medicine at Cambridge. He is now undertaking an MB/PhD to spend some time researching with the Cookies. During his undergraduate degree, he developed an interest in cancer research and his third year project with Professor Nick Coleman investigated the signalling networks of the Human Papilloma Virus oncoproteins E6/E7. He has also researched, with Dr Gary Doherty, clinical prognostic indicators in ovarian cancer patients.

His current research focuses on the regulation of Transcription Factor EB (TFEB), in relation to ERK1/2 and the cell cycle. In his spare time, he enjoys attempting (but ultimately failing) to learn Mandarin and cooking (which tends to go wrong as well).

Richard is the first medic to undertake a PhD in the Cook lab and has taken responsibility for our health and wellbeing. He is always on hand with a warm stethoscope, suitable analgesia and an excellent bedside manner.
