Emily Mitchell, FRCPath

PhD Student

Emily Mitchell's research aims to investigate factors contributing to blood stem cell ageing, primarily focusing on changes at the stem cell population level.  She is a Haematology Registrar at Addenbrooke's Hospital and is also interested in understanding how ageing of the blood system contributes to the development of blood cancers. 

I am using novel approaches based on whole genome sequencing of individual blood stem cell colonies to reconstruct changes in the blood stem cell population size over an individual’s lifetime.  It is extremely exciting to be able to explore how changes at the stem cell population level could contribute to ageing and cancer development, a previously totally unexplored area.
