CAREER SEMINAR “A story of development and differentiation – from red blood cells to career moves”
As a scientist at Genomics plc, I split my time between working on our collaboration with Vertex and leading the integration of functional genomics data with GWAS data. The focus of my research training has been on long-range gene regulation by non-coding elements and the impact of variants on these elements, with an emphasis on open chromatin data in red blood cells. I undertook my doctoral studies in the laboratories of Jim Hughes and Doug Higgs at the Weatherall Institute for Molecular Medicine supported by the Wellcome Trust, followed by a brief postdoctoral role with the WIGWAM Consortium. Before joining Genomics plc, I worked for SevenBridges, a biomedical data analysis startup, as an Algorithmics R&D Scientist.
