Adele Telenius


Adèle Telenius is a Research Assistant who has worked in the Steidl lab since 2011. Adèle holds a Masters degree from the University of Cambridge in part for work done in developing the DOP-PCR technique (Degenerate Oligonucleotide Primed-PCR) which combines flow sorting, Fluorescent in situ technique and PCR to aid identification of unknown marker chromosomes in cancer patients. Since then she worked in industry for several years before joining the Cancer Agency to take part in a pilot project using CGH (comparative genomic hybridization) on BAC (bacterial artificial chromosome) arrays.


Current work involves using a variety of delivery systems from transfection, nucleofection to transduction to generate knock-down and over- expression systems in b-cell lineage cell lines for the functional study of gene mutations in lymphoid cancers.
