Theodora is a Technical Assistant in the Dehns Biotechnology Group, having joined the Oxford office in September 2023.
Before starting at Dehns, Theodora completed her MRes at the University of Bristol. Her research focused on using flow cytometry and activation induced marker assays to study the effect that the presence of superantigens had on T cell proliferation and the expression of activation induced markers following culture with wild type and mutant Group A Streptococcal strains. Prior to this, Theodora graduated from the University of Bristol with a BSc degree in Cellular and Molecular Medicine from the University of Bristol, achieving First Class Honours. Her final year project proposed a method by which sampling of a cancer cell secretome could lead to diagnosis and more effective treatment of high-risk cancers.
