Staff Profile

Dr Julie Murphy

Public Engagement Officer


I am a Public Engagement Officer working within the Wellcome Centre for Mitochondrial Research. I studied within the department for a Master’s in research and subsequently for a PhD investigating exercise therapy to treat patients with Mitochondrial Myopathy. In 2013 I moved from laboratory work to take up an engagement role within the Centre. My main passion is patient care, engagement and empowerment. I feel privileged to work within the mitochondrial patient community and hope that through engagement activities I can make the sometimes complex mitochondrial science more accessible to patients, their families and the general public.
