Eve Navin

BSc Biochemistry

Studying Biochemistry at the University of Bristol, Eve graduated in 2019 and swiftly began a career in medical communications.

During their undergraduate, Eve focused their attention on the progression of cancer; with a literature review about the tumor microenvironment (TME) and a proposal for a model to aid in measuring the migratory capacity of ovarian cancer cells.

The formation and progression of cancer can be limited by the surrounding tissue microenvironment. But, through molecular and cellular interactions, cancerous cells can alter their surroundings and promote their progression. Understanding these interactions, as well as the tumor-induced dysregulation in the surrounding microenvironment, has long been sought after. The therapeutic potential of altering this TME is still being explored, with current research focusing on multi-modal treatments.

To better understand how the TME influences cancer development, Eve’s undergraduate work also looked to develop a 3D organotypic invasion assay. This model hoped to mimic the metastatic route of ovarian cancers into the peritoneal cavity and measure invasive cell migrations.

During their final year of university, Eve attended the Seoul National University summer school for a Chemistry course; meeting worldwide academics and gaining a deeper understanding of the intermolecular forces mediating all chemical interactions.

Since graduating, Eve has worked with a team of medical writers at a medical communications agency in London. Writing for medical professionals, from an education and promotional perspective, as well as for patients and the general public, this role offered a great opportunity to find engaging stories within the data. Passionate about science education and sharing inspiring information, Eve is dedicated to providing in-depth and engaging content on anything from genetics and genomics to antibodies and immunology.

Not only passionate about writing, but Eve is also training to be a professional dog groomer and enjoys painting in their spare time. If not doing either of these, Eve will likely be found watching horror films or murder documentaries.
