Marta Carrara

Senior Scientist

Marta Carrara joined the PhoreMost team in October 2017 as a Senior Scientist in the R&D department. She is currently working with the SITESEEKER® platform development team to set up and run live-cell phenotypic screens, and is developing downstream assays to validate the resulting hits.

Marta graduated with a degree in biomedical sciences, and then went on to do a PhD in structural biology at Imperial College London. More recently she completed a post doc at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Cambridge, under Anne Bertolotti, where she characterized the molecular mechanism by which Ser/Thr phosphatases achieve substrate specificity. Here she was also involved in designing assays to screen and study phosphatase inhibitors for therapeutic use.

Marta enjoys travelling, and has recently taken up mastering Sri Lankan cuisine.
