The study of all the RNA molecules present in a single cell, a population of cells or in an organism. This RNA is copied from our DNA and transcriptomics helps us to learn more about how our genes are working, whether they are active or inactive, and if they are behaving as expected.

I work in the Research Development team at the MND Association as a Research Co-ordinator. I completed my undergraduate degree in Biomedical Science and I became very interested in neuroscience throughout my degree. Following on from this, I did a Master’s degree in Molecular Medicine, with a focus on gene therapies. As part of my role, I will be helping the Research Development team to identify interesting updates in MND research and communicate these via the blog in an understandable and engaging way.
