Magnus Lynch obtained his DPhil from the University of Oxford where he studied epigenetics with a focus on the sequence elements governing recruitment of mammalian Polycomb group proteins. He subsequently  undertook postdoctoral work in the Centre for Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine, King’s College London employing ultra deep sequencing and single-cell transcriptional profiling in combination with computational modeling to dissect cellular and lineage relationships in human skin. He graduated in medicine from Cambridge University and has completed training in Dermatology at St John’s Institute of Dermatology.

Research interests

We are interested in the mechanisms by which cellular identity is established and maintained in three dimensional mammalian tissues and how these processes are perturbed in disease states. We have employed a combination of spatial and single cell transcriptional profiling to define the fibroblast subpopulations that are present within the human dermis. An objective of future work is to combine single cell genetic and epigenetic profiling with advanced imaging methodologies to build detailed computational models describing the spatial and temporal dynamics of cells within the human skin in both health and disease.
