Lucy Cornell

Postdoctoral Researcher

I am a postdoctoral scientist working with Prof Doug Higgs and Dr Mira Kassouf. My research focuses on understanding the mechanisms underpinning enhancer-promoter communication in erythrocytes. I utilise genome engineering, molecular techniques and bioinformatics to probe the syntax of cis-regulatory elements, including boundary elements, promoters and enhancers, to determine their contributions to enhancer-promoter interactions. 


I completed my BSc Hons at the University of Edinburgh and then pursued an MRes at Imperial College London. I was awarded a Wellcome Trust Chromosome and Developmental Biology Studentship to complete my DPhil studies at the University of Oxford.
