Tannia Gracia is a Pharmaceutical Chemist who conducted her PhD studies in Toxicology at Michigan State University in the USA.

She moved to the UK to do her first postdoc in Genomics and Proteomics at the Sanger Institute and 5 years later she joined the Cambridge Institute for Medical Research to work on genetic disorders in the kidney, where she has been for the past 6 years. 

Tannia will give a brief talk about her experience of becoming a mother while being a postdoc and how the University’s programs helped her to go through it. 

This will be followed by a Q&A session for you to raise any questions, and a chance to meet other postdocs and share your own experiences.

Lunch will be provided.

This event is free to attend but please register here.
