Dr Hannah Charlotte Copley is a Medical Research Council (MRC) Clinical Research Training Fellow, working with Dr Vasilis Kosmoliaptsis (Department of Surgery, University of Cambridge) and Dr Andrew Leach (European Bioinformatics Institute, EMBL-EBI), and an Undergraduate Clinical Supervisor in Anatomy at Magdalene College.
Her current PhD research is examining donor Human-Leukocyte-Antigen (HLA) humoral alloimmunity with the goal of improving histocompatibility and immunological risk assessment in transplantation.
Hannah read Medicine at the University of Cambridge (Gonville and Caius College), including an intercalated BA in Physiology, Development and Neuroscience which was awarded a Senior Exhibition. Prior to commencing her PhD, Hannah was an Evelyn Trust Clinical Research Fellow, an Academic Clinical Fellow in General Surgery and an Academic Foundation Trainee (Surgical theme).
