Charlotte carried out her MSc research first at the University of York, working with Peter O’Toole, and later with Lucy Collinson at Cancer Research UK in London. Having developed a passion for light and electron microscopy through investigation of the nucleplasmic reticulum, Charlotte went on to undertake a PhD in the lab of Bram Koster in Leiden, the Netherlands, under the guidance of Montserrat Bárcena. Through the use of correlative light and electron microscopy, electron tomography, autoradiography and other techniques, this work explored the novel rearrangements of cellular endomembrane that are hijacked for replication of the picornavirus genome (replication organelles), generating new insights into their formation and morphology.
