LeedsOmics representative board members are ambassadors from PhD students and postDoc researchers in the omics fields
Bethany Kuszlewicz (Leeds Institute of Cancer and Pathology, Faculty of Medicine and Health)
My PhD project involves developing experimental and computational techniques for mapping the immune system (immune cell repertoires) in response to different disease states. I apply omics techniques to this project, particularly immunomics and genomics, by using next generation sequencing methods and by developing pipelines to analyse large volumes of this sequencing data.
Aikaterini Douka (School of Molecular and Cellular Biology, Faculty of Biological Sciences)
PhD student in the Aspden group studying the role and coding potential of cytoplasmic lncRNAs during neuronal differentiation. Full profile
Mario Cocco (Leeds Institute of Rheumatic and Muscoloskeletal Medicine, Faculty of Medicine and Health)
I am interested in Cellular and Molecular Immunology and I intend to use Omics approaches to understand mechanisms leading to loss of homeostasis in a spectrum of autoinflammatory disorders.
