Research Summary

As a scientific curator I work on capturing the published functions of genes and their products, including ribonucleic acids (RNAs) and proteins as well as the associated cellular processes. I currently work on an Alzheimer's Research UK-funded project, focussing on Gene Ontology annotation of proteins relevant to dementia. https://www.ucl.ac.uk/functional-gene-annotation/

I also contribute to BioNews, an email newsletter focusing on genetics and medical updates for specialist as well as non-expert audiences. http://www.bionews.org.uk/barbaraczub/

Previously I graduated from the University of Surrey with a first class BSc (Hons) Biotechnology Degree. As a part of my undergraduate studies I completed an Industrial Placement Year with Eli Lilly Research & Development in Windlesham, Surrey, where I was researching ion channel antagonists.

I completed a PhD in Molecular Biology and Genetics at the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology. During my graduate studies I was investigating the molecular basis of retinal degeneration caused by mutations in a ubiquitously expressed gene called TOPORS (RP31).

Teaching Summary

I contribute to teaching on two courses: 

  • Introduction to Bioinformatic resources and Gene Ontology - a two-day practical computer-based workshop: https://www.ucl.ac.uk/cardiovascular/research/pre-clinical-and-fundamental-science/functional-gene-annotation/teaching/two-day-workshop
  • Understanding bioinformatics resources and their application - an MSc module - a component of UCL Genetics of Human Disease MSc course: https://www.ucl.ac.uk/cardiovascular/research/pre-clinical-and-fundamental-science/functional-gene-annotation/teaching/msc-module
