Life Sciences Research for Lifelong Health

Charlene Fabian

Charlene was awarded an MSci in Molecular and Cellular Biology by the University of Glasgow in 2016. As part of her course, Charlene undertook a one-year research placement within the Refractory, Respiratory and Inflammation Discover Performance Unit of GSK, where she was involved in target identification.

Charlene started her PhD at the Babraham Institute in October 2016 and is funded by an MRC Industrial CASE Studentship. In collaboration with DefiniGEN, Charlene will investigate the role of epigenetic processes in the specification of pancreatic cells from human pluripotent stem cells.
