Prof Dave Carter
Dave graduated from York University with a BSc in Biochemistry, which included a year working on the human genome project at the Sanger Institute in Cambridge. He completed his PhD at Cambridge University under the supervision of Dr Peter Fraser. During his PhD he developed a novel assay, ‘RNA-tagging and recovery of associated proteins’, to demonstrate a physical interaction between a locus control region and the ß-globin gene. He then worked at Oxford University as a postdoctoral researcher in Prof Peter Cook’s lab, investigating the structure of transcription factories. He was appointed as Senior Lecturer in Biomedical Science in October 2009 (and recently promoted to Professor) in the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences at Oxford Brookes University. Here he established a lab to study the effects of non-coding RNAs and extracellular vesicles in stress response.
