Although this is intentionally a personal website rather than one for my academic research group, it is important for me to acknowledge that none of this research would be possible without working with hugely talented people.

I am grateful to all members of my academic group, past and present.


I would also like to acknowledge the UKRI Medical Research Council for supporting much of my work.

Finally, I would like to particularly thank the following individuals, all of whom have had a huge [positive!] impact on my career and I have deeply valued their guidance over the years. In roughly chronological order:

Tim Frayling, Mike Weedon, Anna Murray, Andrew Hattersley, Mark McCarthy, Andre Uitterlinden, Mike Boehnke,

Ken Ong, Nick Wareham, Steve O'Rahilly, Steve Jackson and Eva Hoffmann.
