Postdoctoral research fellow
Dominique McCormick is a Data Scientist in the Baillie group at the University of Edinburgh, primarily based in the Baillie-Gifford Pandemic Science Hub and the Roslin Institute.
Her PhD, supervised by Prof. Andrea Munsterberg, characterised the biology of microRNAs during cardiogenesis. Subsequent post-doctoral fellowships have included studying both the non-coding landscape of human cytomegalovirus and rare genetic disease resulting in diabetes and lipodystrophy, giving her extensive in vitro and in silico experience in analyses involving omics, molecular biology, and biochemistry.
Currently her focus is on probing data from the world-leading ISARIC and GenOMICC studies to further characterise the mechanisms whereby genetic variance leads to clinical outcomes of critically ill patients.
