Professor Andrew Wilkie is Wellcome Trust Senior Clinical Research Fellow and Professor of Genetics at the University of Oxford. His first important contributions were in the descriptions of the presentation and molecular basis of the alpha-thalassaemia/mental retardation syndromes. More recently he has focused on the developmental genetics of skull and limb malformations. Apert syndrome was shown to be caused by mutations in the FGFR2 gene. He has gone on to identify mutations in other genes contributing to skull malformations, and we will shortly have the pleasure of hearing more about his work when he addresses us.
