Ciara O'Flanagan

Research Associate

Ciara has a PhD in cancer biology and a background in the cell biology of progressive breast cancer. Her current research involves the development of high throughput imaging and drug screening techniques to study the relationship between the genomic and transcriptomic landscape and response to treatment in breast and ovarian cancers.
