Ian Overton is a Senior Lecturer at the Centre for Cancer Research and Cell Biology, Queen's University Belfast.
His research group are applying data integration and machine learning approaches to develop probabilistic network models of gene function, as well as predictive algorithms (e.g. for cancer treatment regime selection), including systems-wide modelling of phenotypic plasticity. Control of epithelial and mesenchymal cell fates is fundamental in development (e.g. neural crest migration), in cancer progression and associated with stem cell properties, including somatic cell reprogramming.
