Dr Vicky Green


Senior Research Fellow


Victoria Green obtained a first class honours degree in Biochemistry from the University of York in 1993 before undertaking a PhD at the University of Hull, Department of Medicine looking at "The role of oestrogen and its regulation in pituitary adenomas" which she completed in 1997. Victoria has worked ever since in the Biomedical Sciences Department under its various guises at the University of Hull as a post-doctoral researcher.

Postgraduate research supervision

I welcome applications from both medically trained individuals and basic scientists to further research into the use of microfluidic devices as a platform for investigating human tissue responses to treatment. In addition I am particularly interested in tumour biology and the role of exosomes in disease and their use as biomarkers
