Dr. Alex Gould is a group leader and Head of the Division of Physiology and Metabolism. He obtained his BA and MA in Natural Sciences from King's College, University of Cambridge, UK. His PhD research was on Drosophila Hox genes with Rob White at the University of Cambridge.
He was then awarded a Beit Memorial Fellowship to undertake postdoctoral training on vertebrate Hox genes with Robb Krumlauf at NIMR, where he established his own research group in 1998.
