Dr Alice McGovern

Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Department of Anatomy and Neuroscience

I have a PhD in neuroscience and have a fellowship that allows me to do my research. I take great pleasure in understanding things and finding things out.

There are so many smart minds in biomedicine and rapid increases in technology will lead to lots of big discoveries. There is also a big push for equality in terms of gender in science, so expect to see some amazing females leading the way in the future!

Remember to always question the ‘why’ and ‘how’ and don’t assume that what you are told or hear is always correct! If you can get yourself out of your comfort zone, you’ll become a more rounded and confident person.
