About Hanna Al-Metrami
I am currently in my final year of an integrated Masters degree in Biochemistry at University College London. I was amongst the first cohort of Laidlaw Scholars at UCL which provided me with an invaluable opportunity to investigate mitochondrial DNA abnormalities (mtDNA) in a mouse model that were present due to a deficient mitochondrial protein (MPV17). The mtDNA abnormalities manifested in a pathology that affects the brain, liver and muscle.
Research throughout my degree has led to an interest in computational biology and I am specifically interested in how we can use technology to enhance research, as well as to improve human wellbeing through the digital health sector.
