Personal profile

Research interests

Inês Sequeira is a post-doctoral researcher at the Centre for Stem Cells & Regenerative Medicine in the King’s College London. Her main research focus is to understand how stem cells deregulate to develop tumours, particularly studying the signalling pathways at the onset of the stem cell progression to cancer, as well as the nature of the stem cell heterogeneity. Inês’s interests encompass cross-discipline research, collaborating with bioinformaticians and mathematicians to developing tools for image analysis and modelisation of stem cell behaviour.

Inês has also been engaged in several science outreach activities and has developed projects between art and science: she collaborated with architects and artists to create a Stem Cell Hotel for an art exhibition at the Somerset House in London, she organises students visits to the laboratory and is involved in school visits with Native Scientist.
