Professor Wendy Gibson

Biography

I started research on African trypanosomes during my PhD at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, collecting field samples from domestic animals in Liberia for subsequent isoenzyme analysis. Deeper understanding of trypanosomiasis in the field was obtained during a 4 year secondment to the Kenya Trypanosomiasis Research Institute. I subsequently trained in molecular biology with Prof Piet Borst at the Netherlands Cancer Institute funded by a Wellcome Trust Advanced Training Fellowship for 2 years, returning to UK on an MRC Senior Non-Clinical Fellowship.
