Lily is a 3rd year Medical Student at Cardiff University with an interest in medical journalism and research. Her healthcare interests are wide-ranging, but she particularly enjoys academic surgery and dermatology. A summer research placement allowed her to investigate the psychological sequelae of colonic resections, and she has presented her research into the therapeutics of Parkinson’s Disease both nationally and internationally.
Lily is enthusiastic about medical innovation and translational medicine and has enjoyed widening access to research amongst medical students through her two years on the committee of Cardiff University Research Society (CUReS). She has enjoyed research taster days in Oxford and Cardiff and hopes to intercalate next year. She finds medical education rewarding and has spent time on medical outreach schemes for sixth formers in Cardiff and Carmarthenshire.
Outside of University, Lily enjoys charity work for spinal injury rehabilitation and has been involved with Disability Sport Wales. She is passionate about lifestyle and preventative medicine at a public health level and her hobbies include ballet, running, cooking and travelling.
