Dr Zuzana Brabcova


Dr Zuzana Brabcova is a Bio-Informatician and Computational Biologist, whose post is funded by the Howat Foundation. Dr Brabcova is a post doc in Dr Vignir Helgason’s lab, which has identified that Leukaemic stem cells which give rise to Leukaemia are very metabolically distant from normal stem cells. As a computational scientist she is working with numbers to show exactly how different Leukaemic stem cells are from normal stem cells. She is aiming to find out how they differ and how to target their vulnerabilities or “Achillies Heels”. Supporting Dr Brabcova is part of the Howat Foundation’s continued support for Vignir’s lab.
