Charlotte Ng

Group Leader

Charlotte Ng is an Associate Professor of Genetics at the Humanitas University and a Group Leader at the Humanitas Research Hospital, where she leads the Computational Biology Lab.

Charlotte obtained her PhD at the University of Cambridge, UK, in 2012. She began her post-doctoral fellowship at the Institute of Cancer Research, London, and relocated with the lab to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, New York, US in 2013.

She was a research associate at the University of Basel in Switzerland from 2016-2018 before starting her research group at the University of Bern in Switzerland in 2019. In 2023 she moved to Humanitas, in Milan, as an Associate Professor and Group Leader in 2023.

Charlotte’s work focuses on using multiomics profiling, bioinformatics and computational biology to address outstanding questions and challenges in precision oncology. With many years of experience working with multi-omics data, she is interested in leveraging the abundance of ‘omics’ data derived from clinically annotated samples in computational frameworks to advance our understanding in tumor cellular dynamics, to discover novel biomarkers and therapeutic targets and to elucidate genotype-to-phenotype associations in cancer.

She has developed automated and reproducible sequencing data analysis pipelines, which have been used in 60+ of her own research publications. She is currently active in the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC-ARGO) Data Coordination and Management Working Group, and contributed to European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) Translational Research and Personalised Medicine Working Groups and The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) analysis working group.
