Lubna Shafi


I am an experienced Research Technician professionally registered as a Registered Scientist (RSci) with the Science Council and a member of the Institute of Biomedical Sciences. I work with Professor Ann Morgan for the Section of Molecular and Personalised Medicine within the Leeds Institute of Cardiovascular and Metabolic Medicine. My work involves developing new protocols to generate pilot data for future funding for my group. My core skills include genotyping (MLPA), producing high-quality library preparations for next-generation sequencing, protein production and purification, nucleic acid extractions, flow cytometry analysis of microparticles, troubleshooting problematic workflows and sample tracking.

Research interests

I work for Immunogenetics Facility which provides a comprehensive DNA and RNA extraction service for both internal and external users, generates libraries for next-generation sequencing applications as well as geneotyping FCGR polymorphisms and protein production and purification. I am also a member of the Fc Receptor Biology Group which develops strategies to modulate interactions between IgG and FcγRs
