Heather Hendrickson

Senior Lecturer in Molecular Bioscience, Massey University

I have a PhD in Biology from the Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology Program at the University of Pittsburgh. My thesis involved the evolution of bacteria and the process of Horizontal Gene Transfer. I was awarded a highly competitive Human Frontier of Science Program Long (HFSP) Term Fellowship to work in the Biochemistry Department at Oxford University under Distinguished Professor David Sherratt. I became a faculty member at Massey University in Auckland after my post doctoral work.
