Sumana Shrestha is a PhD student at the Institute of Cancer Research, London. She currently studies the childhood brain tumour “Medulloblastoma”, and during her PhD, she hopes to create a more robust and comparable disease model for this cancer type. She is super excited about her project in which she will be using novel stem cells to develop a cerebellar organoid system amongst other in vitro/in vivo systems. Out of work, she loves teaching science to students, and exploring all the amazing restaurants in London! For more about Sumana's research and experience, please visit her full profile.
