Welcome to my ePortfolio!
My name is Rebecca Clayton and I am a postgraduate student at the University of Warwick on the BBSRC funded Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP) course. I am currently in my second year, having just completed a training year comprising of Programming, Statistics, and Data Analysis courses, biological skills-based masterclasses, mini research projects and professional training. I am now carrying out my PhD research in Professor Greg Challis' research group.
I studied Chemistry at the University of Warwick, and graduated after completing my MChem degree in July 2018. I joined MIBTP in October 2018, and my PhD project focusses on investigating the biosynthetic pathway of a natural product. Understanding natural products and being able to use their biosynthetic pathways for producing new compounds fascinates me. The interface of chemistry and biology is an area in which I can develop a broad range of skills and broaden my versatility as a scientist.
