My name is Lydia (she/her), I am 23 years old, I come from Greece and I have lived permanently in Scotland for the past seven years. I am in my 1st year of a PhD working in the Beatson Institute. My project entails the use of a mouse model to successfully test combinations of radiotherapy and immunotherapy for the management of rectal cancer, which will hopefully be of clinical value to human patients. In my free time, I enjoy writing poetry, reading books, going for walks, playing the piano and chess, knitting and learning foreign languages. I hope that by writing for the GIST I can improve my writing skills and spread my knowledge and viewpoints on several matters that I feel passionate about.
