Molly Godfrey is a Volunteer Writer at BioNews, having originally joined the publication under the auspices of its writing scheme. She got her PhD in Cell and Molecular Biology at Cancer Research UK's London Research Institute (now subsumed into The Francis Crick Institute), where her work made use of budding yeast to further our understanding of the molecular mechanisms controlling cell replication. Previously, she studied Biological Sciences at the University of Warwick.
