Aki Minoda Radboud University, The Netherlands
Dr. Aki Minoda joined the Department of Cell Biology at the Radbound Institute for Molecular Life Sciences in 2022 as an Associate Professor at the Radboud University. Prior to that, Dr. Minoda was a Team Leader at RIKEN in the Center for Integrative Medical Sciences in Yokohama in Japan where she created a large Mouse Ageing Atlas composed of transcriptomic and epigenomic single cell data. This effort is driven by her curiosity of understanding how and why chromatin degrades with old age that results in cell identity changes, and how that results in disease pathogenicity.
Dr. Minoda graduated from University of College London with B.Sc. Microbiology and earned her PhD in Cell Biology at the Cancer Research UK in London. She received her postdoctoral training at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California where she managed the modENCODE Chromatin project for Drosophila melanogaster, which exposed her to managing large scale projects, epigenomics and bioinformatics.
