integrative omics, network biology
Lena received her PhD in bioinformatics from Edinburgh University looking for co-expression/regulation modules under disease conditions. Thereafter she has worked for years in the private sector as a consultant looking at integration of many types of omics data from hundreds of experiments in order to try to determine the true biological signal underlying complex human diseases.
Lena joined the NBIS Long Term Support in late 2015 and has since then been involved in transcriptomics, meta-genomics, allele specific expression, and scRNA-seq experiments.
The main reasearch interests involves methods for integrating different types of omics data from different organisms and experiments in order to try to understand the underlying causes of complex diseases (e.g. target discovery).
