Ms Helen Schuilenburg

Research Interests

I am a member of the JDRF/WT Diabetes and Inflammation Laboratory that aims to identify and characterise the effects of the susceptibility genes and pathways for type 1 (childhood) diabetes. The work focuses on genetics, genomics and functional studies, and, more recently, experimental medicine. I am part of a team responsible for data in the lab. The main "big data" challenges are (i) the complexity of joining across datasets seamlessly; (ii) data curation and completeness in trials; (iii) data governance and access issues for human subject data in medical research.
