A warm welcome to Ammar Malik who has joined the group as a PhD student. Ammar has a degree in Computer Engineering and brings with him a lot of experience in machine learning. Welcome!
A warm welcome to Sean who has joined the group as a PhD student in the Precision Medicine Doctoral Training Programme. Sean will work on a project to identify and study tissue-specific gene networks affected by genetic variation for plasma cortisol and causally associated with cardiovascular disease phenotypes and type II diabetes, in collaboration with Filippo Menolascina and Brian Walker.
Husain has successfully defended his PhD thesis “Cross-tissue regulatory gene networks in coronary atherosclerosis” at Karolinska Institute. Congratulations and good luck in your future career!
A warm welcome to Pau Erola who joins us as a postdoctoral Research Fellow, having completed a PhD in Computer Engineering from the Universitat Rovira i Virgili and an MSc in Biomedicine from the Universitat de Barcelona.
Hassan has successfully defended his PhD thesis
“eQTL mapping and inherited risk enrichment analysis : a systems biology approach for coronary artery disease” at Karolinska Institute. Congratulations and good luck in your new postdoc career!
A warm welcome to Lingfei Wang who joins us from a PhD in Theoretical Physics at Lancaster University to work on a BBSRC funded project to develop a method for reconstructing causal Bayesian gene networks from large-scale omics data.
A warm welcome to Chris Banks who joins the lab as a postdoctoral research fellow. Chris completed a PhD in Informatics at the University of Edinburgh and will work on developing mathematical models and computational methods for reconstructing gene regulatory networks from diverse “omics” datasets. Welcome Chris!
Sofie finished her one year postdoc in the lab in good style by submitting a paper about her work on long-range genome interactions and will now join Jan Cools’ lab. Thanks for the hard work Sofie and all the best in your new position!
