James Bryson

 
Background

James studied his undergraduate degree in Biomedical Genetics at Newcastle University, gaining practical experience with mammalian cell culture and molecular genetics. He then moved to Edinburgh to study a taught masters in Regenerative Medicine. Here, he was able to gain further research experience utilising the CRISPR/Cas9 system for the cellular reprogramming of induced pluripotent stem cells at the laboratory of Dr. Keisuke Kaji. 
Ultimately James hopes to use synthetic transcription factors and epigenetic modifiers to alter transcriptional profiles within cell populations which, when used in conjunction with cellular therapies, could provide clinical utility for the regeneration of tissues.
In his spare time James enjoys climbing, hiking and ice-skating.
 
Research

James is currently undertaking a PhD studentship on the construction of CRISPR/Cas9 based tools for mammalian synthetic biology at the Rosser Lab.
