Jemma Roberts

Jemma graduated from Sheffield Hallam University with a First Class Honours in Forensics and Analytical Science (BSc Hons) then went on to study cell biology at the University of Glasgow gaining a Masters of Research degree (MRes, distinction) in Cell and Proteomic Technologies, and a PhD in the Use of Enzymatically switchable surfaces to Influence Mesenchymal Stem Cell Differentation. Afterwards, Jemma spent four years at the University of Glasgow as a Postdoctoral Research Associate working on a multidisciplinary project, alongside surgeons and pharma, to investigate human peripheral nerve regeneration. Recognising a skills gap, Jemma went on to do a Masters of Science (MSc) conversion course in Information Technology, and found a new passion for programming. Returning to Sheffield and building on her programming skills, Jemma now works on a number of projects at CENTRIC.
