Cristina Pina is a post-doctoral researcher in the Stem Cell Laboratory at the UCL Cancer Institute. After completing her medical degree and general medical training in Portugal, she joined the Gulbenkian PhD Programme in Biomedicine and did her thesis work in Tariq Enver’s laboratory in Oxford working on transcriptional programming of human cord blood-derived haematopoietic stem cells (HSC). She obtained her DPhil from Oxford in 2008, and has since been interested in understanding the molecular regulation of the transition between the stem cell state and lineage commitment in the blood system.
