报告人简介

Professor Keith Gull did his PhD in the University of London and then moved to a lectureship at Biological Laboratory at the University of Kent where he worked on the cytoskeleton of eukaryotic microbes, particularly trypanosomes, the causal agents of African Sleeping Sickness, He spent the 1990s involved with the development of the School of Biological Sciences in the University of Manchester as Research Dean and moved to Oxford in 2002 as a Wellcome Trust Principal Research Fellow and Professor of Molecular Microbiology at the Sir William Dunn School of Pathology. His research focuses on African trypanosomes, particularly the structural and molecular mechanisms of cell proliferation, differentiation, pathogenesis and antigenic variation.

 

Professor Keith Gull has served on numerous committees of funding agencies and charities including Wellcome Trust. He is a member of many learned societies and was awarded the Marjory Stephenson Prize from the Society for General Microbiology (the Society’s principal prize).He has been elected to Fellowships of the Royal Society and Academy of Medical Sciences and was awarded a CBE by the Queen for services to microbiology.
