Scientific Study Coordinator
Telephone: +44 (0) 1223 764583
Before joining the CEU in October 2019, Amy worked in the Department of Medical Genetics, as a Research Coordinator for the IMAGINE-ID project; a study of intellectual disability and mental health in children and young adults. Prior to this, Amy worked as a Research Assistant, in roles spanning molecular genetics, behavioural neuroscience and whole-animal phenotyping, most recently at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute. Amy has a BSc (Hons) in Molecular & Cellular Biology and an MSc in Clinical Neuroscience.
Amy is currently managing the coordination of two scientific research studies:
- A portfolio of recall-by-genotype experimental studies, led by Dr Dirk Paul, recruiting volunteers who carry pivotal genetic variants associated with cardiovascular disease. These studies will help determine distinct molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying candidate functional variants identified in large-scale genetic studies of human cardiovascular disease.
- The HDRUK Multi-omics Implementation Project; a national platform for molecular studies to inform disease aetiology and prediction for multiple conditions. This consortium, led by Dr Adam Butterworth, is run across 6 UK sites and initially involves nine longitudinal UK population cohorts.
