Jason Amartey

Jason is a PhD student at the Nottingham School of Medicine. His research is based on the revascularisation of ischaemic diseases, particularly focused on the role of splicing factors and kinases and their effect on ischaemic diseases such as peripheral vascular disease. Having obtained a bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Sciences at Cardiff Metropolitan University, Jason furthered his educational journey at the same university, going on to study a Master of Research which placed emphasis on the effect nutraceuticals have on inflammation. Following this, he went to work for a cancer gene therapy company prior to starting his PhD at the University of Nottingham.

Jason is very passionate about increasing diversity and representation of underrepresented groups in STEM.
