Mr Dominic Lynch
Dom obtained his MSci in Genetics from University College London where he studied the molecular basis of neurogenesis in the brittle star, Amphiura filiformis, in the Oliveri lab. Following this he joined the London Interdisciplinary Doctoral Training Programme and spent his first rotation at the Royal Veterinary College investigating the genetic susceptibility of cats to hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Dom came to the Green lab for his second rotation and has subsequently remained here to complete his PhD under the co-supervision of Professor Jeremy Green (King’s College London) and Professor Mark Miodownik (University College London). His project aims to define the self-organisation of embryonic cells into tissue structures, as seen in convergent extension, through a combination of in vivo experiments using Xenopus frog embryos and in silico modelling.
