Sam studied at the University of Oxford for a Masters Degree in Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry, which included a wide range of fields including genetics, cell biology, metabolism, structure and function of macromolecules and DNA/RNA biology. During this time there he received the Dr Maurice Carstairs Jones-Mortimer Prize awarded to a biochemist of ‘outstanding academic merit’. He completed a summer research programme at Imperial College London studying interactions between DNA binding proteins FIGNL1 and Rad51. His final year research project at the University of Oxford focused on detecting the loading of cohesin onto DNA using an in vitro assay.
