Howard D. Lindsay
Howard D. Lindsay graduated in biology from the University of Sussex in 1988. In 1989, he obtained the Ph.D. degree from the laboratory of Dr. Chris Ford at Sussex, investigating cell-cycle controls using Xenopus cell-free extracts. He then moved on to postdoctoral positions with Professor Tony Carr at the MRC Cell Mutation Unit and Dr. Jo Murray at the Department of Biochemistry, where he studied DNA checkpoints and repair pathways in the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe. During this time, he started to develop Xenopus reagents to study checkpoints and genome stability in a higher eukaryote model system. In 2001, he was appointed to a group leader position at the Genome Damage and Stability Center at Sussex. In 2006, he moved to a lectureship at the School of Health and Medicine at Lancaster University, where his laboratory continues to study DNA damage responses using the Xenopus model system.
