Lecturer in Molecular Biology and Reproduction, University of Kent

Peter began his career at the University of Cambridge, obtaining an MA in Medical Sciences and subsequently studying for a PhD with Professor Nabeel Affara in the Department of Pathology. He was among the first people worldwide to apply microarray expression profiling to the study of reproductive functions in mouse and human models of infertility. Peter subsequently continued his training as a post-doctoral researcher in the same group, leading a team investigating genes on the mouse Y chromosome and their roles in spermatogenesis and in genome evolution. In 2014, Peter started his own research group at the University of Kent. His laboratory investigates the molecular biology of reproduction, the conflicting roles played by sex-linked genes in regulating this process, and the relationship between DNA damage repair mechanisms and the checkpoints governing meiotic progression. Peter is a member of the Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies of Reproduction (CiSOR)
