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.
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.
I am an oncology doctor, taking time out of registrar training to do a PhD in Professor Sottoriva’s lab. I obtained my medical degree and a BSc (Psychiatry) at Imperial College, and an MSc at the ICR (Oncology). My project will be focusing on studying clonal evolution in prostate cancer.
