James Donaldson

In 2019, I graduated with a degree in Natural Sciences from the University of Cambridge, specialising in Genetics in my third year. During my undergraduate studies, I completed two summer internships at Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies; a company that develops and carries out manufacturing processes for biologics production. I worked on a variety of customer projects as well as aiding with the development of Fujifilm's recently launched Apollo X CHO cell line. For my PhD, I am working in the Rosser lab, in collaboration with Fujifilm, to further improve recombinant protein production in the Apollo X cell line.
