Judith Cossins


Senior post-doctoral research scientist

After gaining my degree and DPhil from Oxford University I spent seven years in industry before returning to academia. I've been part of David Beeson's group since 2001. My research focuses on congenital myasthenic syndromes, a rare group of inherited disorders which cause muscle fatigue. I have recently been using next generation sequencing to identify mutations in patients, and this has led to the identification of novel genes which cause the disease. I use various cell-based assays to verify the pathogenicity of novel mutations.
