Ashleigh King

EMBO Postdoctoral Fellow

I moved to Oxford and joined the Genome Integrity Lab as a Post-Doc in March 2019. I am interested in understanding immune cell development and function. My research uses the immune system to model 53BP1 pathway-dependent double strand break repair processes that are essential for development, diversity and preventing diseases such as cancer. I completed my BBiomedSc in Cell and Molecular Biology at Deakin University before completing my BSc (Hons) at the University of Melbourne (St Vincent’s Institute) with A/Prof. Jörg Heierhorst, where I studied the role of Asciz in the regulation of lung development. I remained at St Vincent’s Institute and completed my PhD with A/Prof. Jörg Heierhorst in 2018, investigating the role of Asciz and Dynein light chain-1 in embryonic development with a focus on B-cell development and primary cilia signalling.
