Work Stream Manager GA4GH
Alice is a Work Stream Manager for the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health, managing the Data Security, Data Discovery and Data use and Researcher Identities Work Streams. I am responsible for programme management of several international task-teams and knowledge exchange projects, helping to set goals, priorities and strategies as well as representing GA4GH on a national and international level.
Alice’s current role is as a Work Stream Manager at the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH), which is a policy-framing and technical standards-setting organisation aiming to accelerate progress in genomics and health by enabling effective and responsible data sharing.
Prior to this Alice worked as an Operations Manager for Open Targets, an innovative, public-private partnership that uses large-scale genetics and genomics data to systematically identify and prioritise drug targets.
Alice’s scientific expertise and background is in functional genomics, previously working as a Postdoctoral Fellow and PhD student for Professor Nicole Soranzo in Human Genetics at the Wellcome Sanger Institute. Her scientific background involved combining functional datasets with genetic studies to understand biological mechanisms at genetic risk loci and identify potential novel targets.
