Name (sorted in descending order) Role Research Interests
Dr Emily Clark Chancellors Fellow

My main research interests focus on transcriptomics and genomics in livestock in both production animals and indigenous African breeds. I am particularly interested in functional annotation and the transcriptional control of complex traits.

Laura Glendinning Chancellor's Fellow

My group researches the functional relationships between the microbiota, host and environment in various animal species, with a particular focus on avians. 

Dr Andy Law Group Leader/Senior Research Fellow

The development of simple-to-use systems for handling and reformatting data for genetic analyses.

Dr Jeffrey Schoenebeck Chancellors Fellow

Genetic, genomic, and phenotyping approaches to studying the biological mechanisms that underlie canine morphology and disease.

Dr Jacqueline Smith Group Leader/Senior Research Fellow

Genomics of Avian Viral Infections

Dr Douglas Vernimmen Chancellors Fellow/Research Fellow

Our collaborative research with Prof K Kranc is to address the precise functions of epigenetic regulators in myeloid leukaemia using in vitro, ex-vivo and in vivo models. Together with additional screening in patients for mutations in this gene, this research will enable us to develop new approaches to treat leukaemia.
