Mr Eddie Cano Gamez | PhD Student

Cano Gamez, Eddie

Eddie is a PhD student at the immune genomics group. He uses high-throughput 'omics' technologies to investigate the effect of cytokines in the function of human T cells and to understand the impact of genetic variation on T cell function.

I am a PhD student working with Gosia Trynka at the immune genomics group. I am interested in understanding how gene expression is regulated in immune cells and how this regulation is modulated by environmental cues. I am also interested in studying how immune function varies across individuals. As a part of my PhD project I use a combination of experimental and computational approaches such as RNA-sequencing (bulk and single-cell), ChIP-sequencing and quantitative proteomics to study the response of human T cells to cytokines.

My academic background is in biotechnology and molecular biology and I obtained by BSc in Biotechnology Engineering from Tecnologico de Monterrey in Mexico. Apart from science, I am interested in public engagement, education and science outreach. I am also passionate about music and literature, with most of my free time spent reading fiction.
