Daniel Gaffney

Daniel Gaffney

Daniel’s research at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute combines computational and statistical methods with high-throughput experimental techniques to study eukaryotic gene regulation.

Ludovic Vallier

Ludovic Vallier

Ludovic uses human pluripotent stem cells - cells with the ability to develop into almost any type of cell in the body - to study how biological mechanisms direct them to become a pancreas or liver cell. He is also investigating the role these mechanisms play in diabetes and other metabolic disorders.
