Dr Andy Greenfield
Since 1996 Dr Greenfield has been a Programme Leader at the Medical Research Council’s (MRC) research unit in Harwell. His core-funded research is concerned with the molecular genetics of mammalian development, primarily the identification of genes important for the development of the reproductive organs in the laboratory mouse and their role in disease predisposition in humans. At the Medical Research Council, Dr Greenfield chairs the Ethical Review Committee that oversees the use of mice in biomedical research on site.
Dr Greenfield has previously been a member of the MRC College of Experts (2000-2010) and the Wellcome Trust’s Molecules, Genes and Cells Funding Panel (2003 – 2007, 2009-2010), and regularly reviews submissions to journals and funding agencies in the UK and overseas. He is also a member of The Nuffield Council on Bioethics.
Dr Greenfield read Genetics at Cambridge University and went on to gain a PhD in the specialism of mouse molecular genetics, followed by an M.A in Philosophy at the University of London. Periods of postdoctoral research then followed, in the UK and Australia.
