Dr Stephen Brown
Room: Alfred Denny B2 223
Brief career history:
Functional genomics, siRNA genome screens, drug screening, cell models of Human disease.
Functional Genomics and RNAi Screening
I have managed over 50 RNAi library screens for both UK and international scientists. My laboratory uses both automation (robotics) and molecular cell biology to identify genes involved in disease. I am also involved in teaching Masters and PhD students in the art of “Functional Genomics”.
Undergraduate and postgraduate taught modules
Postgraduate studentship opportunities
We advertise PhD opportunities (Funded or Self-Funded) on FindAPhD.com
