Aikaterini Chatzipli, PhD
Research Fellow in Biomedical Informatics, Harvard Medical School
Mentor: Peter Park, PhD

Aikaterini Chatzipli received her PhD in Genetics from Churchill College at Cambridge University. After completing her PhD, Chatzipli joined the Wellcome Sanger Institute as a Postdoctoral Fellow, where she worked on a variety of projects exploring the utility of large DNA sequencing studies (S:CORT Consortium, PDX Finder) to predict clinical outcomes for cancer patients and shed light on tumor evolution of different cancers (Draaisma, Chatzipli et al., Journal of Clinical Oncology, 2019). Her work also involved modeling chromosomal catastrophes (e.g. chromothripsis) often seen in cancer, and unraveling of their mechanisms (Maciejowski, Chatzipli, et al., bioRxiv, 2019). Apart from research, Chatzipli also enjoyed teaching Cell Biology modules to undergraduate Natural Sciences students as part of her Fitzwilliam College Bye-Fellowship at Cambridge University.

In the Park Lab, Chatzipli works on tissue specificity of cancer drivers in the context of the Cancer Research UK Grand Challenge, and also investigates the genomic landscape of rare cancers (GeM Consortium).
