JENNIFER FRANSSON

POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW (BIOINFORMATICIAN)

My research interest lies in integrating, interpreting and visualizing high-dimensional data in a way that is beneficial to biomedical research. Understanding the subtle differences between different cell populations is important in multi-faceted research fields such as immunology and tumorigenesis, as even small differences in either direction can have large systematic effects. During my PhD, I studied how macrophage activation profiles can explain their destructive and regenerative properties in multiple sclerosis. I will now be working on inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and colorectal cancer (CRC), integrating bulk, single-cell and spatial transcriptomics. Using data from experimental models and patient samples, I hope to elucidate how to correct pathological states in an exact and efficient way.
