Professor Andrea Sottoriva’s team uses biological, clinical and mathematical expertise, in order to decipher how cancer progresses, metastasises and develops treatment resistance.
Professor Andrea Sottoriva uses genomics and computational approaches to understand cancer as a complex system. He obtained a degree in computer science and worked in particle physics before switching to biomedical research. He is the Deputy Director of the ICR's Centre for Evolution and Cancer.
I am a PhD student studying cancer evolution using statistical and computational methods. My background is in pure mathematics (BSc) and statistics (MSc). I joined the lab in October 2015 to commence my studies.
I obtained an MSci in Biochemistry from the University of Glasgow in 2018. In October 2018 I joined the labs of Dr Michael Hubank and Professor Andrea Sottoriva to investigate the use of liquid biopsy to monitor clonal frequency and emergence of resistance mutations in paediatric cancers.
