Visit to the UCL Cancer Institute

At the laboratory

As part of the TRACEPIGEN project, Dr Ivana Boljević spent two weeks in July on a short-stay secondment at UCL Cancer Institute, Department of Cancer Biology, Medical Genomics group (London, UK). She was hosted by Prof Stephan Beck and Dr Nnenna Kannu. During this period, she gained insights into the ongoing projects at the UCL, attended Medical Genomics laboratory meetings, and learned more about different bioinformatics pipelines, including the analysis of DNA methylation data. This short stay enabled her to gain exposure to an international environment and obtain additional transferable skills.
