Kate McIntosh
PhD student


I completed my Bachelor’s degree at the University of Bath, which involved a year spent working in research abroad; I spent six months in the Department of Structural Biology at St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee (purifying Frizzled protein in order to characterise its use in Wnt signaling) and six months in the Department of Pharmacy at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia (researching the treatment of cardiovascular disease using adenosine receptor agonists).

My current project utilises the skills I learnt during this period. I am currently interested in the cellular and molecular characteristics of Meckel-Gruber syndrome patient cells.

Broad research specialisms:

  • Cell Biology
  • Molecular Biology
  • Biochemistry
  • Genetics


2011-present – PhD. – Cell and Molecular Biology
2007-2011 - BSc. Biology with Professional Placement, University of Bath
