Fiona Nielsen


Fiona Nielsen, founder and CEO Repositive, is a bioinformatician who previously worked in research and development (R&D) at Illumina, developing tools for interpretation of next-generation sequencing data and analysing cancer and FFPE samples, sequenced on the latest technology. It was in these roles that Fiona realised how difficult it is to find and access genomics data for research. In 2013, Fiona founded DNAdigest, a charity promoting best practices for efficient and ethical data sharing – aligning the interests of patients and researchers. Fiona was nominated for the 2013 WiSE award for Entrepreneurship and Innovation for her work with DNAdigest.
