Dr Kathryn Evans


Following my PhD I moved to a postdoctoral post at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, where I was involved in the Human Genome Project. I was recruited back to the MRC HGU to lead the genetic and physical mapping of a genomic region linked to bipolar disorder in a large family. Since moving to the University of Edinburgh, to what is now CGEM, my research has diversified, mainly to other areas of psychiatric and dementia research. Ongoing work in my group spans genetics, epigenetics, bioinformatics and functional (cell-based) analyses. In addition to research, I am CGEM Post-Graduate Convenor and teach students on MSc and PhD programmes.
