Tom Sheard


I am a PhD student funded by the Medical Research Council, applying super-resolution microscopy techniques to gain insight into the pathological remodelling that occurs to cardiomyocytes during heart failure.

My research career began with a BSc, Biological Sciences in Leeds, and encouraged along with a Society for Endocrinology summer studentship at the University of Liverpool. I gained the qualification of MPhil, Adaptive Organismal Biology at the University of Manchester, and in doing so developed a taste for full-time research, as well as an appreciation for the cardiac and microscopy fields.
