Ioanna received her BSc in Biological Sciences in 2018 from the University of Reading, United Kingdom. She performed her Bachelor thesis project on potential treatments against triple-negative breast cancer, which inspired her to pursue a career within the cancer research sector. Ioanna is currently on her second year in the Master’s Program in Biomedicine at Karolinska Institutet. During this time, she had the chance to work in the Baryawno lab as a student intern by focusing on single-cell RNA sequencing (scRNAseq) analysis of neuroblastoma tissue. She will be returning to the Baryawno lab for her Master’s thesis with the aim of using scRNAseq to investigate novel therapy targets within the tumor population in neuroblastoma using in vitro as well as in vivo models.
