The Student


Réka Nagy

I am a PhD student at the MRC Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine at the University of Edinburgh. I use large family-based datasets to unravel how genetics shapes our health. When I’m not busy writing scripts and analysing data, I communicate science through various formats. I’ve recently started designing my own evolution-themed board game using the prize from “I’m A Scientist, Get Me Out of Here!”.
