Investigator biography

Cath discovered her interest in cell biology at the Institut Pasteur in Paris, during postdoctoral studies of myogenic cell fate control. She returned to the UK with a Wellcome Trust Advanced Training Fellowship, to acquire expertise in live cell imaging of human cells with the Pines group at the Gurdon Institute in Cambridge. She subsequently set up her own research programme to study ubiquitin-mediated events in mitotic exit, with the support of a Career Development Award from the MRC. In 2008 she became a research group leader in the Department of Genetics and in 2015 a lecturer in the Department of Pharmacology.
