Dr Georgina Menzies (School of Biosciences, Cardiff University, UK)Speaker's Biography
Georgina gained her BSc(Hons) in Forensic Science from the Uniersity of Glamorgan, studied for a MSc in Molecular Modelling from Cardiff University and for her PhD focused on the structure of DNA in cancer hotspot sites at Swansea University. After a Ser Cymru II fellowship to study the functional outcomes of dementia genetics, she took up a lectureship at the School of Biosciences in Cardiff University.
Her main research interests involve studying DNA repair pathways and in particular the protein and DNA strcutral interactions using molecular modelling techniques. She also collaborates with a number of other researchers and reserach groups to provide strucural and functional information for their biological strucutre of interest. This ranges from drugs to anti-boides and proteins. Most of her reserach involves modelling techniques including molecular dynamics, coarse grain and mathematical modelling.
