Dr. Andrea Degasperi

Research Associate

I am post doctoral researcher with a long experience working with biologists in systems biology, computational biology and genetics, with focus on cancer research.

I earned my Ph.D. at the University of Glasgow in 2011 and then worked as a post doctoral researcher for Systems Biology Ireland at the University College Dublin in Ireland, later at AstraZeneca in Cambridge, and finally joined the Nik-Zainal’s group in 2017.

My main contributions to the team are in the development of the mutational signatures framework and algorithms, along with their application for patient stratification and personalised medicine.
