DPhil Student

I am a DPhil student researching the genetics of common elastic tissue disorders with Professor Dominic Furniss and Mr Akira Wiberg at NDORMS, and am co-supervised by Professor Krina Zondervan

I am conducting genome wide analyses to understand the biology of some very common conditions
concerning ‘elasticity’ of tissues, including varicous veins and female organ prolapse.
