Senior Investigator Scientist
John is a Senior Investigator Scientist with a primary interest in understanding the aetiology of, and relationships between, reproductive ageing and type 2 diabetes. Prior to this appointment he was a Sir Henry Wellcome fellow, holding positions at the University of Exeter Medical School, Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics (University of Oxford), Department of Twin Research (Kings College London) and the Center for Statistical Genetics at the University of Michigan. John has co-authored more than seventy publications in peer reviewed journals, including 18 in Nature Genetics and 9 in Nature/Science.
