Research groups

Shannah Donhou

Lab Technician

I am a member of the Sample Processing Team (SPT) within the DIL group, working on management, processing and storage of samples. 

I graduated in 2015 with a BSc in Human Biology from Oxford Brookes University. After graduating, I began working at the University of Oxford as a Research Technician in the Centre for Osteoarthritis Pathogenesis. The group focused on identifying the cellular and molecular mechanisms of Osteoarthritis (OA). Specifically, my projects included investigating the role of TSG-6 in OA and the influence of the gut microbiome on OA. This led me to move to Norwich in 2017, where I began working at the Quadram Institute on the early life microbiota and its influence on the immune system, specifically dendritic cells.  After a move back to Oxfordshire, I began working in the DIL group in April 2019, as part of the Sample Processing Team.
