Welcome!
MV Science Forum invites to a lecture with Oscar Bedoya Reina, an assistant Professor at the Karolinska Institute, and recently joined the School of Medical Sciences at the University of Örebro as Lecturer in Translational Bioinformatics.

Title: Navigating Mutational and Transcriptomic Landscapes in Biology and Medicine: From Single Cells to Populations.

Dr. Bedoya-Reina conducted Ph.D. studies in Bioinformatics and Genomics at the Pennsylvania State University in Webb Miller's lab. During this time, he studied the genomes and transcriptomes of several model and non-model species and developed computational tools to analyze them.
Dr. Bedoya-Reina further joined Chris Ponting's lab at the Universities of Oxford and Edinburgh to study the role of non-coding RNAs in hypoxia response, and later joined Susanne Schilisio's lab at Karolinska Institute to conduct single cell studies in sympathoadrenal malignancies and models. Since 2020, Dr. Bedoya-Reina is an Assistant Professor at the Karolinska Institute, and recently joined the School of Medical Sciences at the University of Örebro as Lecturer in Translational Bioinformatics.

His current research aims at elucidating the origin of metastasis in neuroblastoma, to clarify the role of the newly identified cell populations in metastasis and drug resistance, and to elucidate the drivers of the epithelial/noradrenergic to mesenchymal transformation.
