Olga Mielczarek

Olga started her undergraduate degree in Biotechnology in Poland and for her honours year she moved to the University of the West of Scotland where she investigated the role of the PAR-2 receptor in Arthritis. She then studied for an MSc at the University of Edinburgh investigating the role of miRNAs in CMV infection. After graduating, she took a position as a research technician at the University of Cambridge where she was involved in a project that has demonstrated the Arabidopsis thaliana circadian clock is reset by signals from photosynthesis. Olga joined the Corcoran lab in 2013 and is working towards her PhD investigating genome organisation in B cells.
