Szi Kay Leung is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Exeter. Prior to this, she graduated with an integrated MBiochem in Biochemistry from the University of Oxford where she completed her final year project at NDORMS (Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculosketal Sciences) on the regulation of Nerve Growth Factor, pain mediator, in myeloma-bone microenvironment. With a founded interest in epigenetics and Alzheimer’s disease, she completed her PhD in April 2022. Entitled ‘Functional genomic characterisation of Alzheimer’s disease risk genes’, her thesis examined the role of alternative splicing and RNA isoforms in AD by using a range of genetic, transcriptomic and epigenetic analyses.
