My story

[p]Hi! My name is Teresa Brevini and I am a scientist from Milan (Italy), where I studied Medical Biotechnology. I have always been passionate about translating new scientific discoveries into tangible medical solutions, hoping one day to be able to make a difference for the lives of others. I am currently doing a PhD at the University of Cambridge (UK) in the laboratory of Dr Fotios Sampaziotis, where we study bile duct cells (cholangiocytes) trying to find alternative therapeutic options for disorders of the biliary tree, such as PSC (Twitter: @Fsampaziotis). [/p][p][br][/p][p]Before starting my PhD, I was not aware of the burden of cholangiopathies and how little we still understand these diseases. My research gave me the opportunity to work side-by-side with clinicians and offered me a window to understand how difficult it is to live with a chronic disease like PSC but also the tenacity that arises from it and how much help organization such as [i]PSC Support UK[/i] provide. For these reasons, I decided I want to give my contribution beyond my work in the lab.[/p][p] [/p][p]Doing research is very much like running a marathon, the finish line seems very far away but if you set one foot in front of the other and not give up, ultimately you will get there. This is why I decided to run the London Virgin Marathon for [i]PSC Support UK[/i]. Since this year the marathon is going to be virtual, I chose my stage to be Addenbrooke’s hospital in Cambridge where I work, because this is the place where research is translated into new therapies to improve the lives of people, and this is ultimately what we fight for. [/p][p] [/p][p]On the 3rd of October 2021 I will run the marathon in laps around Addenbrooke’s hospital and my finish line will be in front of the Wellcome-MRC Cambridge Stem Cell Institute where our laboratory is. I would love if you could join me, even if only to share 3 miles together. I will send updates on my Twitter page @BreviniTeresa.[/p][p] [/p][p][i]On the day before the marathon (2nd of October 2021), Dr Sampaziotis and Teresa Brevini will be discussing their research and what they do in the lab on a virtual event organised by PSC Support UK followed by a Q&A session. Join to learn more about how they are planning to beat cholangiopathies.[/i][/p][p][br][/p]
