Dr Annabelle Lewis
Senior Lecturer in Biomedical Sciences


I am a lecturer in biomedical sciences and run a research laboratory. My research interest is cancer genetics and gene regulation, focusing on colorectal cancer. We use cell lines and animal models to study how common variants in the human genome affect the expression of key cancer genes, and increase the risk of an individual developing cancer.


PhD in Developmental Genetics and Imprinting (The Babraham Institute, University of Cambridge)

BA in Natural Sciences (University of Cambridge)
