Alix Gunne-Braden

Originally Irish, Alix joined the Quantitative Cell Biology group as a PhD student in 2014. She completed her BSc in Biology at Imperial College London, after which she worked as a research technician at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Cell Biology, UCL.


In the lab

Alix’s interests lie in how cells decode cues from their environment in order to commit to a specific cell fate. In particular, how an embryonic stem cell makes the fundamental decision to differentiate.


Outside of the lab

Alix has an unquenchable thirst for travel and is always on the hunt for somewhere new to explore.
