Clare Newell

I obtained my BSc in Biochemistry from the University of Surrey with an industrial placement year, spent at UCL in the lab of Prof. Ivan Gout. In this year I investigated the role of Coenzyme A in neurodegenerative diseases involving mutations in the CoA biosynthetic pathway. My PhD in Alex's lab will focus on the synthesis of Drosophila cuticular lipids and their localisation. Throughout my PhD, I will be working jointly with the National Physical Laboratory utilising new techniques in imaging mass spectrometry
