Early researcher

Ecem Kirkiz



I have always been passionate about disease research, which has been reflected in my laboratory experience thus far. I developed a specific interest for studying haematological malignancies during the final year of my BSc degree, and have been pursuing research in this area since.

I aim to use a multidisciplinary approach for aiding the development of better and more targeted therapies in the clinic. For this, I exploit the in vitro and in vivo models of fusion protein-driven myeloid malignancies in our lab, and aim to identify the interactors and regulators of such oncogenic proteins using transcriptomic, proteomic and epigenomic approaches, complementing these techniques with functional studies.
