Aimee is a PhD student on the London Interdisciplinary Doctoral Programme working between the Centre for Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine (CSCRM) at King’s College London, and the Centre for Biomaterials and Interventional Science at University College London.
She is co-supervised by Dr Ivo Lieberam (KCL) and Professor Wenhui Song (UCL). Aimee’s research is focussed on developing new biomaterials which are used to grow skeletal muscle tissues in the lab. Her research helps us to better understand how our muscles work, and how they can be affected by certain diseases.
Alongside her research, Aimee enjoys taking part in science public engagement events, and has been involved in the many of the school visits and outreach activities taking place at the CSCRM. During the 2nd year of her PhD she completed a Sci-Comm internship at The Royal Institution, and was responsible for organising and delivering Masterclasses for school children all across London. Aimee is very excited to share her research with the public in a fun and interactive Biomaterial Slime Activity!
