Dr Joseph Powell, Senior Research Fellow, Institute for Molecular Bioscience and Affiliate Senior Research Fellow, Queensland Brain Institute
Joseph Powell is the head of the Single Cell and Computational Genomics Lab at the University of Queensland’s Institute for Molecular Bioscience and an NHMRC Career Development Fellow. His research involves the use of large-scale transcriptomic and DNA sequence data from both bulk tissues and single cells, focusing on understanding the genetic mechanisms by which heritable variants contribute to disease susceptibility at a cellular level, and ultimately achieve therapeutic and diagnostic outcomes. His group consists of both a high-throughput single cell sequencing laboratory and a core of computational genomics expertise.
