Getting to know VH Bio’s new HLA tech specialist, Nav

30 July 2019

VH Bio are pleased to welcome Navjot Sagoo to the team as our new HLA Technical Specialist! Get to know her in this short bio:

In 2014 I graduated from Nottingham Trent University with degrees in both Biological Sciences (FdSc) and Biomedical Sciences (BSc).

During university, I undertook various laboratory placements, including a 3-month placement in a hospital in Mumbai. This enabled me to gain experience within the laboratory and understand how to use different reagents and equipment.

I joined Anthony Nolan as a Clinical Assistant in 2014. I worked very closely with VH Bio because my main responsibility was SSO Typing using LabType. In 2015 I was promoted to the role of Laboratory Scientist and trained on SeCore SBT and SSP Typing – again, working closely with VH Bio.

In 2018 I was promoted to role of a Senior Laboratory Scientist and was involved in various process development projects to develop and improve HLA-typing processes, as well as troubleshooting any issues that arose. Alongside my practical skills, I also developed a key understanding of different analytical software programs including HLA-Fusion and U-type.

Outside of work I enjoy cooking and testing out new recipes. I love travelling and visiting new countries. I studied Spanish as an A-level and I enjoy practicing whenever I get the opportunity to do so.

I would also like to learn new languages – Italian is next on the list! Furthermore, I am a nail artist (follow me on Instagram @nav_nails) and I like to keep up with all the latest nail trends!
