Biography:
I was born and brought up in Switzerland. Undergraduate studies at the University of Zürich in Switzerland ('86-'90). PhD with Mariann Bienz mostly at MRC LMB in Cambridge, UK on homeotic genes (labial) in Drosophila midgut development ('91-'93). Short-term postdoc research with Mariann Bienz mostly at MRC LMB in Cambridge on wingless (wnt) signalling in Drosophila (1994). Post-doc research with Randall Moon in Seattle (USA) on Wnt8 in Xenopus mesoderm patterning ('95-'97). Short-term postdoc research with Enrique Amaya at Wellcome/CRC Institute in Cambridge on Xenopus transgenics (1997). Wellcome Trust Research Career Development Fellow and Lecturer at University of Dundee ('98-'03), investigating 1) The functional role of Wnt signalling during Xenopus organogenesis; and 2) Molecular mechanisms ensuring tissue-specific response to Wnt signalling. Senior Lecturer then Reader in Institute of Medical Sciences at University of Aberdeen (since 2003) investigating 1) Molecular Mechanisms of tissue-specific Wnt signalling in embryonic development and cancer, 2) Wnt Signalling in Xenopus Heart Development.
