I joined the DSTT in 1999 after completing my BSc (Hons) Biotechnology at the University of Abertay Dundee. I had spent time in Prof Carol MacKintosh's lab doing my honours project. Carol made me aware of a position coming up in DSTT and after 16 years I'm still here! I work as part of the production team, providing high quality reagents to UoD researchers and pharmaceutical companies. As a parent, any spare time I have is devoted to my son.
