Professor Adele Marston is a cell biologist who investigates how the genome is inherited during reproduction. Her research group use model organisms to identify genes, proteins and fundamental pathways that organise and sort chromosomes into new cells as they divide. Using patient-donated human eggs and informed by their studies in model organisms, the group investigate potential causes of female infertility and the effects of maternal age. Professor Marston is Director of the Wellcome Centre for Cell Biology and co-Director of an interdisciplinary PhD programme.
