Carl Anderson (United Kingdom)

Carl is originally from the North East of England, but you’d never know it from his accent. Following a PhD in Quantitative Genetics that took in both Edinburgh (UK) and Brisbane (Aus), Carl moved to Oxford to work on the IBD arm of the seminal WTCCC project. In 2009 Carl moved to the Sanger Institute to establish the Genomics of Inflammation and Immunity group. Since 2014, Carl has also been the Director of Graduate Studies, overseeing a programme of more than 80 graduate students.
