Unravelling the origin of childhood cancer

My team uses cutting edge single-cell techniques to understand normal human development and how normal development relates to disease. We focus on understanding and quantifying the nature and origins of cancer cells, particularly childhood cancers. To do this we combine the study of somatic genomic changes, bulk and single cell transcriptomics, and mathematical modelling of data.

Keywords: Cancer / somatic mutation / single-cell RNA sequencing / childhood cancer
