Lindsey in a few words

I am an experienced postdoctoral scientist with a strong background in molecular biology (in particular next generation sequencing), mitochondrial RNA biology, epigenetics, genome editing technologies and human embryonic stem cells.

As Investigator Scientist, I am currently employed in the Mitochondrial Genetics group of the Mitochondrial Biology Unit, part of the University of Cambridge. I design, perform and analyse NGS studies for our group and as part of international collaborations. In my role as NGS expert, people frequently consult me on study design and setup.

As a freelancer I perform custom made NGS analysis and can also assist in manuscript writing if needed.
