Wellcome-MRC Cambridge Stem Cell Institute



Nicola Wilson graduated from Huddersfield University in 2003 with a degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology. She received her PhD in 2007 from the University of Leeds and then proceeded to a post-doctoral position in the laboratory of Professor Bertie Gottgens in the Department of Haematology, University of Cambridge in 2006. Nicola is currently a Senior Research Associate working with Professor Bertie Gottgens.

Nicola's primary focus is to investigate the regulatory networks at play during blood cell development, to discover how these regulatory networks control the function of blood stem cells and how dysregulation of these networks lead to the development of leukaemia. With a combination of experimental and computational approaches, the Gottgens group takes advantage of single-cell genomics technologies to be able to look at different combinations of expression profiling, epigenetics and surface protein expression to be able to characterise the transcriptional landscapes of blood stem and progenitor cell differentiation both in adult haematopoiesis and during blood development.
