Kayleigh Walker


Kayleigh Walker is a PhD student in the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology funded by Cancer Research UK. Her research focuses on the identification of small molecule drugs that target PD-L1 that can mimic the action of antibodies. This involves using NMR Spectroscopy, amongst other techniques, to explore protein-small molecule and  protein-protein interactions with the aim of informing drug development. Before arriving in Leicester, Kayleigh completed her undergraduate degree in Biochemistry at The University of Manchester. In her spare time Kayleigh enjoys watching true crime documentaries, electronic music and sampling vegan junk food.
