Clare Scott-Lab team


The Scott laboratory has a strong emphasis on research that has potential for clinical translation.
Our relatively large laboratory is made up of a combination of clinician scientists, postdoctoral fellows, students and research assistants. We have a strong collaborative ethic and while the lab is working on two main projects – rare cancer and ovarian cancer – technical expertise and resources are shared between both groups.
There is a variety of expertise within the group including bioinformatics, genomics and cell biology.
