Dr Cynthia Lilian Andoniadou
Lecturer in Stem Cell Biology
Cynthia joined King's College London in September 2013 as a Lecturer in Stem Cell Biology. She carried out her PhD at the MRC National Institute for Medical Research in Mill Hill and in 2005 joined the lab of Dr Juan Pedro Martinez-Barbera at the UCL Institute of Child Health for her post-doctoral research focusing on anterior forebrain and pituitary development.
Dr Amanda Patist
Amanda completed her PhD in the lab of Professor Julian Davis at the University of Manchester working on the transcriptional regulation of prolactin by oestrogen. She joined the Division of Craniofacial Development and Stem Cell Biology in June 2014 and is interested in the control of adult organ homeostasis and in particular, the WNT signalling pathway.
Emily is a King's Bioscience Institute PhD Student in Biomedical and Translational Science, funded by The Guy’s & St Thomas’ Charity (2013-2017). She is investigating the regulation of pituitary stem cells during development and how perturbations can lead to congenital pituitary defects, with a focus on the Hippo signalling pathway.
After successfully completing an MSc in Neuroscience and Developmental Neurobiology at King's College London and his research project in the Andoniadou Lab, John was awarded a four-year Diana Trebble PhD Scholarship (2014-2018). He is participating in the London Interdisciplinary Doctoral (LIDo) programme, training in using mathematical and computational approaches to tackle biological questions. John is applying these skills to investigate the regulation of stem cells during postnatal expansion.
