Team
Anne-Ferguson-Smith
Anne C. Ferguson-Smith is Professor of Genetics and Head of the Department of Genetics at the University of Cambridge, UK. She received her PhD from the Department of Biology at Yale University studying the functional genomic organisation of mammalian Hox clusters. For the past two decades, her team has researched the role and regulation of genomic imprinting in development and disease, and the epigenetic control of genome function in a wider context. Her current research focuses on three themes - stem cells and the epigenetic programme; genome-epigenome interactions; and mammalian development, environment and disease. She is a Wellcome Senior Investigator, an elected member of EMBO and a Fellow of the UK Academy of Medical Sciences.
