Life Sciences Research for Lifelong Health

Peter Rugg-Gunn

Peter joined the Babraham Institute in 2011 as a Wellcome Trust Research Career Development Fellow. Peter trained in the laboratories of Roger Pedersen (University of Cambridge) and Janet Rossant (The Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto) where he developed his interest in understanding the epigenetic regulation of stem cells and lineage specification. Peter is also involved in the societal impact of stem cell research – most recently working with artists to generate a major exhibition that examines the complex ethical and social issues surrounding biotechnology.
