Claudia Semprich

Claudi was awarded her Ph.D. in 2016 after researching the “Regulation of Polycomb Repressive Complexes at the Neural Differentiation Gene Pax6” under the supervision of Prof. Kate Storey in Dundee. Before that, Claudi obtained her Masters in Molecular and Cellular Biology from the University of Potsdam, studying the role of histone modifications in co-transcriptional splicing.

Claudi enjoys hiking in the hills – not such an easy hobby to maintain after moving from Dundee to Cambridge…  Funded by a BBSRC ISPG, Claudi joined the Babraham Institute in 2018 to study the mechanisms controlling epigenetic heterogeneity and lineage-priming in human pluripotency.
