Anne Ashford

Anne grew up in Sheffield and completed her undergraduate Masters’ degree in Biochemistry at the University of Oxford. She then worked at Novartis Pharmaceuticals in Sussex where she discovered her love of cell signalling (for which she is currently receiving counselling).

Still failing to escape ‘the South’, she embarked on an AstraZeneca/BBSRC CASE PhD Studentship followed by a Post-Doc in the Cook laboratory working on DYRK proteins. Her conversion into a Southerner was confirmed when she wore a coat every day during her summer holiday in Northumberland.
