Vikki received a BSc (Hons) in Molecular Biology from the University of Surrey in 1997 and in 2001 completed a PhD in Cancer Studies at the University of Liverpool studying mechanisms of breast cancer metastasis (Dr Barraclough and Prof Rudland). Subsequently Vikki worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute of Child Health in London (Prof Latchman) where she studied the role of transcription factors in cervical cancer using inducible cell systems and viral vectors.
During her undergraduate degree Vikki undertook a professional training year in the Retinoblastoma Screening Unit, London (Dr Onadim). During this year Vikki developed a passion for human genetics and its application to healthcare, therefore in 2003 she moved to Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge and undertook training to become a Clinical Scientist in Molecular Genetics. In 2007 Vikki registered with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC) as a Clinical Scientist and in 2009 Vikki passed the the Royal College of Pathologists Part 1 examination in Molecular Genetics and obtained Diplomate Membership of Royal College of Pathologists.Vikki is currently a regional Public Engagement Officer for the Royal College of Pathologists helping facilitate public engagement in pathology in the South West.
As a Clinical Scientist Vikki has undertaken routine molecular genetic testing and reporting for a variety of inherited disorders including Cystic Fibrosis, Huntington disease, Muscular Dystrophy and inherited forms of cancer including Lynch Syndrome and Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia. Additionally as a departmental training officer Vikki has trained and mentored pre-registration Clinical Scientists and Practitioners and has been involved in the Modernising Scientific Careers training programmes since their pilot in 2009. Vikki completed the Modernising Scientific Careers Train the Trainer programme in 2011.
