Affiliated Principal Investigators are scientists working in the broader local biomedical community who has a clear and long term scientific relationship with the IMS-MRL.
The status is renewable every 3 years and so long as scientific relationships with the Institute remain strong.
Current Affiliated PIs are:
Catherine’s group investigates the mechanisms by which suboptimal nutrition in early life can affect reproductive ageing, the impact of this on population health and effects across generations. Catherine is an Academic Clinical Lecturer in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology.
Gavin is Head of the Epigenetics Programme at the Babraham Institute. His group currently focuses on understanding how epigenetic states are established in mammalian germ cells and early embryos, and the effects of ageing and diet on the integrity of epigenetic information and its transmission to the next generation.
Eleanor is a veterinary surgeon and a lecturer in the Department of Physiology, Development and Neuroscience. Her group aims to understand how genes are linked to obesity in both dogs and humans, to reveal mechanistic links and identify targets to improve obesity prevention and treatment.
Amanda’s group aims to better understand the aetiology of various pregnancy complications and developmental processes, including the environmental and genetic control of placental morphogenesis and function. Amanda is a lecturer in the Department of Physiology, Development and Neuroscience.
