My career in genomics: immune diseases

In this film Gosia Trynka talks about her research looking at the effect of genetic changes on the immune system. This is one of a series of films providing a unique insight into different careers in the field of genomics. 

Gosia Trynka is group leader of the Immune Genomics team at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute. In this film she describes how she uses a combination of laboratory experiments and computer analyses to explore how genetic variants influence the immune system. She is particularly interested in how these variants can result in autoimmune diseases, where the immune system starts to attack the body.

Gosia completed her masters and PhD in the lab before deciding to carry out a computer-based post-doc where she spent time developing statistical methods. However, she soon missed the lab environment and decided to combine the two approaches in her current research at the Sanger Institute in Cambridge.
