Calin Dragoi graduated from Corpus Christi College in 2021 with an MBiochem degree. Currently, he is studying for a DPhil in Biochemistry at Trinity College, under the supervision of Bela Novak.
At Oriel, he teaches topics in the Information Transfer and Toolbox modules for 2nd and 3rd year Biochemistry students, Physical Biochemistry and topics in Molecular and Cellular Biology for 1st year Biochemistry students, as well as various Biochemistry topics for 1st year Medics.
His research focuses on using mathematical modelling of the cell cycle control network in order to understand how the biological properties of the eukaryotic proliferative program emerge from systems of molecular regulatory interactions. The purpose of this work is to gain a better understanding of proliferative disorders, such as cancer and ageing, and open new avenues for translational research.
