Biography

Jeniffer duffMy role within the Mitochondrial Research Group is laboratory technician, providing support to Professor Rita Horvath’s group in the genetic analysis of neurological diseases. I work alongside Angela Pyle and Gavin Hudson on projects involving the segregation analysis of variants identified from exome sequencing of patients with monogeneic and multifactorial disorders. Most of the diseases studied by the group are mitochondrial disorders such as Leber’s Heredirary Optic Neuropathy (LHON). In addition to the laboratory support I provide to research staff I also assist in the training of students in various molecular biology techniques and help with the day to day running of the lab.
