Dr Clare van Eyk

Postdoctoral Research Officer

Adelaide Medical School

Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences


Clare van Eyk is a postdoctoral scientist in the Australian Collaborative Cerebral Palsy Research Group. She is based within the Neurogenetics research group at the Adelaide Medical School. Her research investigates the contribution of genetic and epigenetic variation to cerebral palsy. This involves both identification of genetic variation using next generation sequencing technologies, and the functional interpretation of these genetic findings using various techniques including animal and cell models.
