Rizwan Ansari | Advanced Research Assistant

Ansari, Rizwan

I am a cell biologist, interested in learning behaviour of human cells . Currently, I am working on Dr. Mathew Garnett's CRISPR-Cas9 project. The aim of the project is to identify novel drug targets by performing CRISPR-Cas9 screening in human cancer cell lines. I have also worked on human Induced pluripotent stem cells(hIPSCs)"HipSci" project for 2.5 years.


  • Successful Generation of Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Lines from Blood Samples Held at Room Temperature for up to 48 hr.
