Gina completed a degree in Natural Sciences, specialising in Physiology, Development and Neuroscience, at the University of Cambridge. Following this she spent a few years working in clinical research including working for a company specialising in pharmacovigilance monitoring and then assisting in the management of a large multinational Haematology trial. She then undertook an MPhil in Developmental Biology at the University of Cambridge. This was followed by a PhD in the lab of Dr Erica Watson, co-supervised by Prof Anne Ferguson Smith, exploring the potential genetic and epigenetic mechanisms responsible for the transgenerational inheritance of developmental abnormalities seen in mice with abnormal folate metabolism. Gina joins the Epigenetics group as a Research Assistant.
