Hessa S Alsaif

MSc student in Genomic Medicine

I am an MSc student at Knight Group, my research focuses on functional characterization of novel variants associated with Sepsis identified by Whole Exome Sequencing.

I have a background in Biochemistry and Mendelian Genetics. I completed my Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Biochemistry with honours at King Saud University. After that, I worked as a researcher at the Department of Translational Genomics (Dr. Fowzan Alkuraya's lab) at the King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Centre in Riyadh, where I contributed to research projects on various Mendelian phenotypes. I later continued my research journey at the Advanced Diagnostics and Therapeutics Technologies Institute at King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology (KACST), where my enthusiasm for translational genomics continued to thrive.
