Dr Hannah Long is a Sir Henry Wellcome post-doctoral research fellow in the laboratory of Professor Joanna Wysocka at Stanford University. Hannah received her undergraduate education at the University of Cambridge in the Natural Sciences, and her DPhil at the University of Oxford Biochemistry Department as a student in the Wellcome Trust Graduate Programme in Chromosome and Developmental Biology. During her PhD, Hannah worked with Professor Rob Klose to uncover conservation of non-methylated islands across vertebrate species and interrogate DNA sequence features that contribute to DNA methylation status. In her post-doctoral work, Hannah is investigating mechanisms of developmental gene regulation, with a focus on long-range enhancer function in craniofacial development, evolution and disease.
