Neele Drobnitzky

MSc and DPhil student 2011 - 2017

Neele joined the CRUK/MRC Oxford Institute for Radiation Oncology in 2011 for the MSc in Radiation Biology having received a first in her BSc in Molecular Medicine from the University of Tuebingen, Germany. Neele obtained a distinction in her MSc, working on RET inhibitors in Medullary Thyroid cancer. She was awarded an MRC scholarship to continue to work in Professor Anderson Ryan’s lab during her DPhil, investigating EGFR-TKI resistance in Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer.

Neele presented her work as both posters and talks at a number of national and international conferences. She collaborated with a number of other groups in the Department of Oncology, resulting in high impact publications.

During her DPhil studies, Neele was awarded MRC DTP supplementary funding for advanced in vivo imaging as well as the Sarah and Nadine Pole Scholarship and travel award from Trinity College, Oxford.

Neele is now working in the Target Validation Group at Immunocore Ltd where her work involves validating and optimising antibody staining for IHC for oncology targets of the Immunocore pipeline so that they can be used in clinical assays for patient selection for Immunocore drugs. Neele says: "In my work I benefit a lot from the practical and theoretical knowledge on a broad range of techniques and the field of oncology that I acquired during my DPhil at the Department of Oncology."
