Dr Caia Dominicus

Postdoctoral Fellow


This person is a member of Sanger Institute Alumni.

Caia is a Postdoctoral Fellow with the Open Targets Initiative at the Sanger Institute

Caia’s current research is focused on the development of a screening platform that will facilitate the systematic phenotypic and transcriptomic comparison of mutations of different genetic risk factors contributing to Alzheimers disease, Parkinson’s disease and Amyotropic Lateral Sclerosis. Caia obtained her PhD at the Cambridge Institute for Medical Research with Stefan Marciniak where she studied the role of the unfolded protein response in early development. She then moved to the laboratory of Moritz Treeck at the Francis Crick Institute for her post-doctoral studies where she developed a genome-wide arrayed CRISPR platform for targeted screening in Toxoplasma gondii, and undertook global phosphoproteomic profiling studies to investigate T. gondii egress signalling pathways.
