Noor Gammoh

Chancellor's Fellow

Background

Noor Gammoh completed her undergraduate studies in biological sciences at the University of Edinburgh. In 2003, Noor moved to pursue her doctorate degree at the laboratory of Dr Lawrence Banks, Trieste – Italy, where she investigated the role of Human Papillomavirus-encoded proteins during oncogenesis. In 2009, Noor moved to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centre in New York for her postodoctoral training. During that time, her research focused on the molecular biology of autophagy and its role during cell death and tumorigenesis. Noor relocated in 2013 to establish her own laboratory as a Chancellor’s Fellow at the University of Edinburgh where she continues her interests in investigating the molecular biology of autophagy and its relevance in aggressive cancer models such as glioblastoma.
