PhD Student, Division of Human Genetics, University of Cape Town

Stacey started her PhD in 2014, after completely her Masters in Biotechnology, with the research focusing on biomarker discovery for ovarian cancer using molecular and computational approaches at the University of the Western Cape. Her PhD focuses on identifying disease pathogenesis in individuals with retinitis Pigmentosa. Her approach is to use stem cells to model the disease in an in vitro environment. This allowed her to be a part of the CRG/Africa mobility Programme where she worked on iPSC generation and characterisation at the Centre for Genomic Regulation in Barcelona, Spain.
