Hello, my name is Farhana and I am a third year Biomedical Sciences student at Queen Mary University of London. I was born and brought up in Rome and moved to the UK when I was 12 where I completed my GCSE and A-Levels. After completing my degree, I am hoping to study medicine and become a doctor specialising in neuroscience or paediatrics. I am hoping work around the world as my ambition to travel the world led me to learn how to speak seven languages such as Italian and Spanish.
I am currently working on a project placement based on a drug called alemtuzumab which is being used to treat relapsing MS. An innovative cell-based assay called GloBody is able to detect the anti-drug antibodies (ADAs) or in other words antibodies against alemtuzumab present in patients’ serum who have previously received this treatment as it can help determine the efficacy and prevent any future complications.
I am creating a piece of information to communicate this innovative technology to help MS patients understand how the GloBody technology works to find anti-alemtuzumab antibodies. However, I would like to find out some information in order to develop it.
This survey is aimed at health care professionals and will take approximately 3-5 minutes to complete. I will use the data collected to design information accordingly and for my project report. Thank you for your time!
