Lily Cao

I am Lily, a second year DPhil student in Biochemistry. My project focuses on DNA repair processes, specifically exploring the function of new proteins involved. I am intrigued by therapeutic development for cancer from a DNA damage response perspective, hopefully helping patients in need. I lived in Vancouver and Beijing as I was growing up and completed my undergraduate studies in Biochemistry at Imperial College London. Apart from work, I enjoy listening to concerts and wandering around bookstores or museums. I was a member of Jesus College and have transferred to St Catherine's College this year upon receiving funding.
