Alexandra Almeida



I am the Research Manager (maternity cover position) for the NEUROSEC team.I have a PhD in Developmental Biology from the University of Cambridge, where I studied neuronal development in frog embryos under Professor Anna Philpott’s supervision. I then moved to a postdoctoral position in Professor William Harris’s laboratory studying retinal development at the Department of Physiology, Development and Neuroscience also at the University of Cambridge. In addition to scientific research, I enjoy bringing people together and coordinating projects. I have also been involved in activities such as organisation of seminars and symposiums, science outreach events and fundraising for medical causes.
