In 2014 Sadie graduated with a First Class (Honours) MPharm degree in Pharmacy from the University of Manchester. During her final year she completed a computational chemistry project entitled 'Metalloproteins: Too Difficult for Docking Methods?' with Dr R. Bryce.
After graduating, Sadie completed her pre-registration training at Pfizer, Sandwich and Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge; she is now a registered pharmacist. Whilst at Pfizer, Sadie undertook a research project investigating the use of an instrumented adhesion punch to predict tablet sticking. She presented the results of this research at the Academy of Pharmaceutical Science PharmSci conference in September 2015.
Sadie joined the Centre for Doctoral Training in Advanced Therapeutics and Nanomedicines in September 2015 and undertook her first training project under the supervision of Dr Martin Garnett. Sadie's second training project was based at AstraZeneca, Macclesfield, supervised by Dr Andrew Megarry, Dr Ron Roberts and Prof Gavin Reynolds.
