Kenny Roberts

Postgraduate Student

My research aims to elucidate the role of long non-coding RNAs in regulating key pathways in human cells.

I graduated from the University of Oxford with a first-class master's degree in Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry. I worked in DPAG prior to my DPhil, undertaking my final honour school research project in Chris Ponting's group.

My DPhil research is funded by the Medical Research Council. Although I was originally recruited as a student in the Ponting group within the MRC Functional Genomics Unit, I have now moved to the Oliver group, where I am jointly supervised by Associate Professor Peter Oliver and Professor Dame Kay Davies.
I am still working in association with Professor Chris Ponting and Dr Tamara Sirey, now of the Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine at the University of Edinburgh.
