development, sensory systems, nuclear receptors, thyroid hormone.
To a significant extent, our research has its origins in my early training at EMBL working on the erbA oncogene and its cellular progenitor, which encodes a thyroid hormone receptor. Our study of novel phenotypes in receptor knockouts has led to a current focus on the development of hearing and the colour visual system.
1987 PhD, Univ. of Glasgow / Beatson Institute for Cancer Research.
1987 Postdoc with B. Vennström, EMBL and Karolinska Institute.
1991 Postdoc with T. Curran, Roche Inst. of Molecular Biology, NJ, USA.
