IntroductionEgenis is delighted to welcome three new Research Fellows this month.
Dr Alison Kraft joins us from the University of Nottingham, where her research has focused on the history of the blood stem cell and its various applications in contemporary clinical settings. At Egenis, she will work with Dr Christine Hauskeller to develop research projects around their shared interests in stem cell innovation.
Dr Michael Morrison arrives from the Science and Technology Studies Unit at York, where he worked on the EC FP7 Regenerative medicine in Europe (REMEDiE) project. His primary role at Egenis is to work with Dr Susan Kelly and the Healthcare Technologies and Society (HTS) group to support ongoing work and develop new projects in the core area of novel applications of genomic technology in healthcare.
Dr Berris Charnley is the newest recruit. He recently obtained his doctorate from the University of Leeds, with a thesis entitled ‘Agricultural Science and the Emergence of a Mendelian System in Britain 1880-1930’. He will mainly be working with Professor John Dupré and Dr Sabina Leonelli in research into the history and philosophy of biological research practices.
Egenis Director Prof Dupré said: “We are very pleased to be able to strengthen our research base with three such excellent appointments. These new posts reflect the breadth and the interdisciplinary nature of Egenis research.”
