Cristian Riccio

PhD Student


This person is a member of Sanger Institute Alumni.

I studied biology at the University of Lausanne. At the same time, I worked at the neighbouring Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale on the crystal structure of a bacteriophage protein (see article below).

During my Masters project at the University of Cambridge, I demonstrated that an enteroendocrine mammalian cell line can produce action potentials optogenetically (see article below). Now I am using third-generation sequencing in nematodes to study their natural genetic diversity. This work is done in the labs of Dr. Martin Hemberg and Prof. Eric Miska.
