Professor Claude Chelala

Data Science representative

Professor Chelala has over 15 years’ leadership in clinical/translational bioinformatics. She co-leads the Barts Life Sciences Precision Medicine programme and the Health Informatics and Bioinformatics for the Breast Cancer Now Tissue Bank and Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund Tissue Bank. There, her teams interlink clinical, in vivo, in vitro and in silico resources to provide the analytical means to harness clinical data and molecular findings. Her research in breast cancer focuses on using multimodal data to explore ancestry-associated differences as well as the clinical utility of field cancerisation in early prediction of cancer recurrence. Additionally, her research in pancreatic cancer uses sequential, non-invasive liquid biopsies and sequencing linked to clinical records for tracking tumour dynamics and informing patient management. Professor Chelala is the Data Science representative on the Research Network Committee.
