Dr. Arwa Alsubait
Dr. Arwa Alsubait graduated from King Saud University with a bachelor degree in Clinical Laboratory Science. Afterwards, I joined KAIMRC where I received a scholarship and pursued my graduate studies in the USA. I finished my masters from Georgetown University in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Then I earned my Ph.D. from the Catholic
University of America in Cell and microbial biology with specialization in understanding the transcriptional regulation machinery of a set of mammalian genes that are involved in the development of a rare genetic disorder using the CRISPR-Cas9 as a gene-editing tool. My research interests’ area are gene editing in cancer and the use of microRNAs as prognostic biomarkers in cancer.
