Transmissible Cancer in Tasmanian Devils
Together with Dr. Elizabeth Murchison's Transmissible Cancer Group, Max is studying the genetics of Tasmanian Devil Facial Tumour Disease (DFTD). His work mainly encompasses broad analyses of cancer genomics datasets and bioinformatics applications. Max joined the Cambridge Department of Veterinary Medicine after completing a Computational Biology MPhil degree at the University of Cambridge Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP), subsequent to a BSc in Biology from the University of Freiburg.
