Adam P Cribbs, PhD

Adam Cribbs is Group Leader and Principal investigator in Systems Biology at the University of Oxford. His aim is to understand disease biology from a functional genomics standpoint.

Our group has a focus on developing novel single-cell sequencing technologies to decipher the complex biology that underpins disease. Specifically, we have developed a set of multiplexed long-read (Nanopore) single-cell sequencing technology. Using this technology, our goal is to understand how cellular heterogeneity encodes epigenetic function and regulation in complex biological systems. Outcomes from this work have facilitated the identification of candidate drug targets across multiple disease types, such as inflammation and oncology. As part of this on-going work, we are developing complex computational pipelines and creating machine learning software that enables the analysis and integration of the data.
