Jordan Ramsey

Jordan Ramsey, Gender Summit 4 EU speaker

Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology, University of Cambridge, UK.

Jordan Ramsey completed her undergraduate degree in chemical engineering (biomedical option) at the University of Alberta in Canada and received a scholarship to do a PhD at the University of Cambridge. She is now in the final year of her degree in Prof Sabine Bahn's laboratory at the Cambridge Centre for Neuropsychiatric Research. Her research has focused on analyzing and interpreting sex differences in proteomic and genomic serum and post-mortem brain tissue data for schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depression and anxiety disorder, and Asperger syndrome. This work has identified  sex-specific molecular signatures for these psychiatric conditions that may reflect clinical differences between men and women in the prevalence, age at onset, course and progression, and response to treatment of these conditions.

Ms Ramsey spoke on Use and Validity of Biomarkers for Females and Males: Application in Asperger’s in Plenary Session 4 Understanding Effects and Interactions between Sexual Dimorphism, Gender and Environment at the Gender Summit 4 EU 2014.
