I am a Biomedical MSc student at King's College London, this money will enable me to work on my research project for 4 more months and eventually find a way to produce human liver tissue to treat end-stage liver patients
I am really passionate in Biomedical sciences research, I chose to work on liver disease as it is a serious worldwide cause of death with no treatment for patients with the end-stage liver disease rather than liver transplantation; however, with the shortage of organ donors, the alternative way is to produce functional livers from potential source of cells in the lab! We are working on a new potential source of cells to produce livers in vitro to be one step forward in eventually saving the lives of millions of people per year.
I have many financial issues as an international student as my tuition fees are much more expensive than a UK/EU student; additionally, living costs in London is so expensive. Therefore, I can barely pay my fees and cannot spend much to stay in the lab more to work on my research project. This money will help me focus on my education and research better and develop more advanced experiments and hopefully find a solution for this worldwide issue to help patients have a longer and happier life.
