Hilary C Martin
After her undergraduate studies in genetics at the University of Queensland, Hilary did her PhD with Peter Donnelly at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics in Oxford. There, she worked on an eclectic set of projects including analysing clinical whole-genome sequence data from rare disease patients, patterns of meiotic recombination in humans, and platypus population genetics. She moved to the Wellcome Sanger Institute in 2016 to start her postdoc with Jeff Barrett, working on the recessive contribution to rare developmental disorders. She became a Group Leader at the Sanger in September 2018. Her group analyses large-scale genetic and electronic health record data to explore the genetic architecture of complex traits in British South Asians and the genetic basis of neurodevelopmental disorders and of cognitive and behavioural traits.
