Tom Strachan is Scientific Director of the Institute of Human Genetics and Professor of Human Molecular Genetics at the University of Newcastle. Tom's early research interests were in multigene family evolution and interlocus sequence exchange, notably in the HLA and 21-hydroxylase gene clusters. While pursuing the latter, he became interested in medical genetics and disorders of development. His most recent research has been on the molecular genetics of early mammalian development, and focuses on building an electronic atlas of gene expression in early human development and investigating the function of inversin, a major determinant of the left-right axis.
