Charlotte Hill is a Postgraduate Research Student within Biological Sciences at the University of Southampton.

Academic Qualifications

2010-2016: MEng Chemical Engineering. University of Surrey, UK.

Research interests

Previous research as part of a masters research project involved understanding the relationship between anticancer drugs, radiotherapy and autophagy-inhibitors on pancreatic cancer.

Current research will be focused on developing further understanding on the regulation of epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) and further dissecting the pathways which are involved in this process. Understanding how these pathways affect the metastic ability and invasiveness of tumours, and the role which autophagy plays in this process.

Research project(s)

How does autophagy regulate the development of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF)?

Autophagy is a highly conserved and tightly regulated cellular process involved in the turnover of cytoplasmic organelles and proteins through a lysosome-dependent degradation process. The aim of this project is to understand the role of autophagy in the development of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), a specific form of chronic, progressive fibrosing interstitial pneumonia of unknown cause.

Role of autophagy in oncogenic RAS-induced invasive behaviour

This project aims to understand the role of autophagy in oncogenic RAS-induced tumour invasion.
