Nadia Akawi is a Senior Postdoctoral Research Fellow in The Oxford Translational Cardiovascular Research Group, a member of the British Society for Genetic Medicine and a member of the Clinical Genetic Science. Her research focuses on identifying pathways and biological processes dysregulated in cardiovascular disease from high-throughput ~omics’ experimental data in order to infer underlying mechanisms and point out key players as potential drug targets and/or disease biomarkers.
In 2010, Nadia was awarded a full PhD scholarship in Clinical Genetics at United Arab Emirates University. Then she began her postdoctoral research in the analysis team of the Deciphering Developmental Disorders project at Sanger Institute in Cambridge 2014, where she has applied her knowledge of clinical genetics and development to discover novel disease genes underlying developmental disorders.
