Simeng is a gastroenterology trainee doctor in the South West, with an interest in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). She has been awarded a Wellcome GW4-CAT fellowship and is currently pursuing her PhD under the supervision of Prof Jonathan Mill, Dr Eilis Hannon and Dr Tariq Ahmad at the University of Exeter and Dr Gareth Jones at the University of Bristol.

During her PhD, Simeng’s project will focus on using genomic approaches to understand the molecular mechanisms of immunogenicity to biologic therapies

Research interests

Simeng’s academic interest in gastroenterology began during her undergraduate studies at the University of Sheffield, where she published two papers on functional bowel conditions, and was a sub-investigator in a number of gastroenterology clinical trials during her specialty training. She was subsequently awarded a Wellcome-funded Clinical Primer at the Translational Research Exchange @ Exeter (TREE) where she developed skills in data analytics, alongside obtaining a Postgraduate Certificate in Genomic Medicine at the University of Exeter.

Simeng hopes to utilise her clinical, genomic and data analytic skill sets to further understand the molecular mechanisms surrounding treatment outcomes in patients with IBD in her PhD.
