Jade obtained a BSc and a PhD in Biochemistry at the University of Bristol where she subsequently worked as a post-doctoral researcher investigating defective cell division.

Following this Jade became a career development fellow at the Medical Research Council Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge researching endocytosis and the blood-brain barrier, with particular emphasis on elucidating the processes involved in the delivery of antibodies from the blood into the brain.

She also has experience studying mechanisms of cell signalling, meiosis, oocyte development, and structural biology. During her time as a post-doctoral researcher Jade has chaired conferences and spoken at International meetings.

Jade’s work involves drafting, filing and prosecuting patent applications, including those with a focus on diagnostics and personalised medicine.
