Erika helps manage the Stem Cell Hotel, a collaborative phenotyping space within the Centre for Stem Cells & Regenerative Medicine (CSCRM), configured to support and enable scientists from King's College London, other universities and industry.
Erika is an experienced project and laboratory manager in both industry and academic settings. She has deep expertise in assay development, high-throughput screening, high content imaging and bioinformatic analysis of ‘big data.’
Erika has extensive molecular and cellular biology experience, including time in drug discovery developing, miniaturizing and validating assays for ultra-high-throughput screening, and in establishing methods for the integration of genotype/phenotype interactions using high content imaging.
Erika hopes that the citizen science activity will engage the participants and ‘acCELLErate’ an interest in the field of stem cell biology.
