Last Friday after 3 years of hard work, Ryan Wong successfully defended his PhD thesis entitled “Breaking T cell Tolerance in Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia”. HIs project funded by Cancer Research Wales, and supervised by Steve Man and Chris Pepper (both declined to be pictured for this article) has been very successful, and has already produced one publication with another manuscript currently under review. According to the examiners, Ryan had produced a lot of interesting results and was well prepared for his viva.
So well done, and congratulations from everyone in the Cardiff CLL group.
ps This is going to a busy year for the PhD students in the group, three more are expected to submit their PhD theses this year. So that’s one down and three to go.
