Inês Sequeira is a post-doctoral researcher at the Centre for Stem Cells & Regenerative Medicine at King’s College London. Her main research focus is to understand stem cell behaviour in tissue regeneration and cancer. Her current project is exploring the role of stem cells in oral tumour formation, understanding the early events of oral tumour formation and finding the key genetic alterations that trigger tumour development.
Inês’ interests encompass cross-discipline research, collaborating with bioinformaticians and mathematicians to develop tools for image analysis and for modelling of stem cell behaviour.
Inês has also been engaged in several science outreach activities and has developed projects between art and science: she collaborated with architects and artists to create a Stem Cell Hotel for an art exhibition at the Somerset House in London, she runs a podcast about the actualities of stem cell research (StemCells@Lunch digested), and organises student visits to the laboratory and visits schools with Native Scientist.
