Prof Christiane Hertz-Fowler

Centre Managing Director

Christiane graduated from the University of St Andrews in 1995 with a degree in Biochemistry and Microbiology. During her undergraduate degree she developed an interest in parasitology, which led to doctoral work on the life cycle differentiation and cytoskeleton of the African Trypanosome, completing a PhD and post-doctoral work in 1999 in Professor Keith Gull’s group. Christiane subsequently moved to the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in 2001, where she was involved in, and more recently lead, the management, annotation and analysis of trypanosomatid genome projects as well as the development of accompanying database resources. In 2009, Christiane moved to the University of Liverpool, where she is now a Senior Research Fellow and manager of the Centre for Genomic Research. Her research is funded by the Wellcome Trust. In early 2016, Christiane received a promotion to Personal Chair.
