Henry Ashpitel


I graduated from the University of Surrey in July 2014 with a BSc. (Hons) in Biochemistry. As a part of my undergraduate degree I spent a year at Weill Cornell Medical College in the Upper East Side of Manhattan, NYC, where I worked in a toxicological research laboratory, examining the effects of the activation of the Aryl Hydrocarbon Receptor in chick embryo hepatocytes.

My PhD research is being supervised by Jian-Mei Li, Professor of Cardiovascular Biology at Surrey University, and Prof. Mark Whiteley. My research involves examining the biological effects of the treatment of varicose veins by thermal ablation, focusing on Endovenous Laser Ablation.

Outside of research my other interests include sports such as squash and swimming, and I also have a strong interest in classical history.
