Giancarlo Marra, Prof. Dr.
Hannah Parker, Dr.
Postdoc - Hannah was born in Cambridge UK
and grew up in a small village in the East Anglian countryside. After completing her undergraduate studies in Biological Sciences at the University of Exeter
she gained an MSc in Pharmacogenetics and Stratified Medicine at University College London. During her thesis project she used a high through-put method to identify SNPs in cardiac surgery patients. It was here that she developed a keen interest in medical genomics. Now at the University of Zurich
Hannah's PhD project is focusing on the characterisation of the methylome and transcriptome of precancerous lesions within the colon using next generation sequencing techniques. Outside of the lab
Hannah enjoys horse riding
skiing and art.
PhD Student - Stephany is Colombian
and grew up in the capital Bogota. She majored in Biology at the Universidad Nacional de Colombia
and after completion she moved to Zurich in 2015 to complete her Master studies. She worked in the Wagner lab under the supervision of Dr. Joshua Payne and Dr. Tugce Bilgin
where she performed a data-driven computational analysis to evaluate the effects of tandem repeat sequences on transcription factor regulation. Now during her PhD
she will integrate different omics data from precancerous lesions of the human large intestine
and develop methods to analyze this type in data in order to facilitate its analysis to the community. In her free time
she enjoys biking
hiking and spending time with her nephew.
