Chloe Pacyna

PhD Student

Chloe is a PhD student at the Wellcome Sanger Institute on a Marshall Scholarship. She is supervised by Peter Campbell and Tom Mitchell.

I’m fascinated by genomic mosaicism generated in early embryonic and foetal development.  These somatic mutations are artefacts from our earliest cell divisions, and studying them can lend insight into normal developmental processes, clonal expansions, and tumourigenesis.  My work predominantly focuses on kidney cancers and cancer predisposition syndromes that affect children and young people.  My clinical interests lie in paediatric oncology and medical genetics.
