Sarah Marzi

PhD student @ King's College London

Sarah is a third-year PhD student in Psychiatric Epigenetics at the MRC Social, Genetic and Developmental Psychiatry Centre, Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King’s College London. Her research is aimed at understanding the role of epigenetic factors in neuropsychiatric phenotypes. She combines laboratory and experimental work with computational and statistical methods to gain a deeper understanding of natural variation of epigenetic modifications across the human brain and its primary surrogate tissues as well as variation associated with disease and environmental exposure variables. For her PhD Sarah was awarded a Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher fellowship by the European Commission as part of the Initial Training Network EpiTrain.
