Professor Ian Adams

Chair position in Reproductive Biotechnologies


Ian Adams studied molecular biology as an undergraduate at the University of Edinburgh before carrying out his PhD research on chromosome segregation in yeast under the supervision of Dr. John Kilmartin at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge. He then undertook post-doctoral research on mouse germ cell development in Dr. Anne McLaren's laboratory at the Gurdon Institute in Cambridge, before returning to Edinburgh supported by a fellowship from the Lister Institute of Preventive Medicine. Ian Adams' research at the MRC Human Genetics Unit in the Institute of Genetics and Cancer is aimed at understanding how genetic and chromosomal stability is maintained in mammalian germ cells.
