Consultant in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care Medicine
Postdoctoral Fellow, Carroll Lab, CRUK Cambridge Institute
MA (Cantab) | MBChB | PhD | MRCP | FRCA
Alasdair studied medicine in Cambridge and Edinburgh, and then began his training in anaesthesia and critical care medicine in Exeter. He returned to Edinburgh to undertake his PhD jointly at the Roslin Institute and the MRC Human Genetics Unit, studying the genomic effects of glucocorticoids on macrophages. Alasdair came to Cambridge in 2015 from a Clinical Lecturer post at the University of Edinburgh. He has joined the Carroll group at the CRUK Cambridge Institute to further his study of how nuclear hormone receptors and their ligands bring about both acute and long-term genomic changes.
