Elizabeth Bayne

Elizabeth bayne I did my PhD with Prof. Sir David Baulcombe at The Sainsbury Laboratory in Norwich, supported by a studentship from the Gatsby Charitable Foundation. My PhD focussed on the role of RNAi as an antiviral defence mechanism in plants, and specifically on suppression of RNAi by the PVX protein p25. I switched to fission yeast when I joined the lab of Prof. Robin Allshire at the University of Edinburgh, where I spent six years as a postdoc. In January 2011 I set up my own lab in the Wellcome Trust Centre for Gene Regulation and Expression at the University of Dundee, supported by an MRC Career Development Award, and in October 2012 I returned to the University of Edinburgh to take up a Chancellor's Fellowship. In 2017 I was made a Reader in Epigenetics.
