Dr Laura Fachal

Senior Data Scientist

I am a Researcher in Human Genetics. My current postdoctoral role focuses on inflammatory bowel disease at Carl Anderson’s team.

During my PhD I studied the role of common genetic variation in the development of radiation induced toxicity. I came to the UK as a postdoc with a Marie Skłodowska-Curie IF Fellowship to work at the University of Cambridge. My work there was to determine, through fine mapping approaches, how common variations increase the risk of developing breast cancer risk and radiation induced toxicity. Since then I have become particularly interested in understanding the biological mechanisms by which genetic variation affects complex phenotypes.
