Team Member: Dr Luke Mansfield

Luke has a bachelor’s degree in biomedical science and has recently completed his PhD in molecular biology from the University of Sheffield. His PhD thesis focused on the roles of telomerase in ageing, generating novel transgenic models in order to understand the interplay between telomerase and the ageing immune system. He has thorough experience in complex molecular biological techniques, genetic engineering, biochemistry and analytical chemistry.

Luke’s passion for science comes from a desire to further our understanding of the natural world, coupled with the aim to apply this knowledge to produce improved diseases treatments.

In his own time he enjoys hiking, sailing, and swimming coupled with a keen interest in brewing.
