Before receiving her Fellowship, Raya was a Senior Group Leader at the Centre for Genome Research at the University of Edinburgh, where she worked on hormonal regulation of liver gene expression and the refinement of transgenic models. Raya has had a couple of career breaks to look after her young family. She gained her Career Re-entry Fellowship and an Honorary Lectureship at the Royal Free (University College London) to work on developmental neurobiology. Raya is currently back at UCL, developing models to investigate mechanisms of disease and for preclinical development of potential therapies, focusing on neurodegenerative diseases and systemic amyloidosis.
