Marilena Elpidorou (Leeds Institute of Medical Research, Faculty of Medicine and Health)

Marilena Elpidorou (Leeds Institute of Medical Research, Faculty of Medicine and Health)

I am a postdoctoral research fellow focusing on understanding intratumour heterogeneity and treatment resistance mechanisms in GBM. I use a multidisciplinary approach to extract cytoplasmic material from single GBM cells using the nanobiopsy platform and assess their transcriptional profiles longitudinally during treatment.

Anthony Buckley (Leeds Institute of Medical Research, Faculty of Medicine and Health)

As a research fellow in the Healthcare-associated Infections research group, my research interests lie in the intestinal microbial ecology and the interaction of the microbiota with pathogens, such as Clostridium difficile. We use an in vitro human gut model to simulate the colonic environment and monitor changes to the microbiome using taxonomic and metagenomic analyses. Full profile

PhD student in the Aspden group studying the role and coding potential of cytoplasmic lncRNAs during neuronal differentiation. Full profile

Euan McDonnell (School of Molecular and Cellular Biology, Faculty of Biological Sciences)

Euan McDonnell (School of Molecular and Cellular Biology, Faculty of Biological Sciences)

I’m a 2nd year MRC PhD student based in the Whitehouse group, where we study host-virus interactions for large DNA viruses. My project is computational and focuses on using various RNA-Seq datasets in understanding the effects of perturbations to host ceRNA networks during reactivation of Kaposi’s Sarcoma-associated Herpesvirus from latent to lytic cycles.
