Research Seminar: Tembi Fashina and Thuy Ngyuen
The Genomics England Research Seminar series is a season of events held to demonstrate the best research from Genomics England and our partners. They started in October 2018, and are monthly, free-to-attend talks presented by Research Network members on the latest research being performed using data from the National Genomic Research Library.
This month's seminar speakers will be:
Tembi Fashina: 'Investigating microRNA-associated variation in the Epileptic Encephalopathies'
Ifeolutembi Fashina is a PhD student at RCSI Ireland. She studies the effects of microRNA-associated variants in neurological conditions using genomic data. Generally, she is interested in research that helps us to understand human diseases better. She has also worked in the clinical trials industry. Outside of work, she enjoys fiction, music and sunshine.
Thuy Ngyuen: 'Effects of Ancestry in the 100,000 Genomes Project Cancer Pipelines'
Thuy is a bioinformatician on the Data Diversity team at Genomics England.
About the research seminars
The seminars will be held on the last Tuesday of each month at 2 to 3pm. These will be online sessions open to everyone and free to attend, we hope to have representation from across the Research Network, Discovery Forum and 100,000 Genomes Project participants as well as anyone else who would be interested in joining.
