Hamish King is a Sir Henry Wellcome Post-Doctoral Fellow working in the Centre of Immunobiology at the Blizard Institute, Queen Mary University of London and the Wellcome Sanger Institute, Cambridge. He completed his PhD training in the Department of Biochemistry, Oxford studying the fundamental mechanisms of gene regulation by sequence-specific transcription factors and other chromatin-based pathways. As part of his post-doctoral fellowship he is now applying his expertise in gene regulatory mechanisms to understand the transcriptional and regulatory networks that determine B cell identity and function in the human immune system using a combination of single-cell and functional genomic approaches. This work aims to provide new insights into how the human B cell and antibody response is controlled and may be disrupted during B cell-related pathologies.
