Alessandra Vigilante (AV) is a Senior Lecturer in Bioinformatics at the Center for Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine with a focus on genotype- phenotype interactions and data integration. AV obtained her PhD in Bioinformatics in Naples (2008-2011) before moving the UK to join Nicholas Luscombe group first at the EMBL-European Bioinformatics Institute as a visiting student (2011-2012) and then as a postdoctoral fellow at UCL (2012-2017). Alessandra Vigilante’s group has significant expertise and experience in the analysis and integration of large scale genomic, epigenomic and transcriptomic data (i.e. single-cell RNA-seq and ATAC-seq datasets, ChIP-seq etc…), and in the implementation of novel computational methods for various bespoke analyses to gain biological insights. AV is actively involved in a great network of collaborations to develop multidisciplinary approaches to research efforts, working with faculty members within King’s and other research institutes.
