Syd Barthorpe | Scientific Manager

Barthorpe, Syd

Syd manages the operational aspects of the drug sensitivity screening within the GDSC group. He has over ten years of cancer research experience working in high-throughput genomic & cell based projects at the Sanger Institute.

The main focus of my work is co-ordinating the various projects across our screening platform and maintaining high quality data output. We are currently operate a rapid turnaround high-resolution drug sensitivity screen across an extensively characterised panel of 750 cell lines. In addition we are also conducting combination screens in both the cell line panel and newly developed organoid cancer models.
