Diego Villar Lozano

Postdoctoral Researcher, University of Cambridge

I am a molecular biologist by training and a DNA sequencing enthusiast! My research interests center on gene regulation in mammals, and its underlying mechanisms in normal physiology and disease.
Currently I am focusing on the application of novel genomic tools to study these processes at the whole-genome level. This research aims to improve our understanding on gene regulation and its impact on other biological processes (such as cancer susceptibility and tumour progression), with the ultimate goal of exploiting this knowledge to develop novel prognostic and therapeutic strategies for human disease.
