Nancy Liu graduated with a Bachelor of Science with First Class Honours from the University of Auckland in 2006 and commenced her PhD in 2007 under the supervision of Associate Professor Paul Donaldson, Professor Mark Cannell and Dr Marc Jacobs.

Her PhD research focussed on the intra- and extra- cellular communication in rodent lens utilising the technique Two-Photon-Excitation-Flash-Photolysis in conjunction with caged-fluorescein or caged-fluorescein-dextran in combination with confocal microscopy. Nancy's aim for her research was to contribute to understanding the mechanisms involved in lens circulation.
