Wellcome Trust Centre For Mitochondrial Research

Thomas Holden


I am the Senior Healthcare Science Assistant for the Mitochondrial NCG Diagnostic Service here in Newcastle. My role encompasses sample reception, DNA extraction and data input for more than 2000 referrals a year.

Having studied Biology and Molecular Medicine at university, I now really enjoy working in such a dynamic and passionate team. I support the scientists and technologists within the service through lab maintenance and sample preparation. The science is incredibly interesting and I find the dedication to providing accurate genetic reporting very motivating.
