Angharad R. Morgan
Angharad R. Morgan received her Ph.D. degree in 2003. She got an industrial collaborative studentship between AstraZeneca and the Human Genetics Division, University of Southampton School of Medicine, and was concerned with the molecular genetics of atherosclerosis. After receiving her Ph.D. degree, she made the decision to continue her professional development in research training and undertook a 12-month postdoctoral fellowship at the Centre for Research in Neurodegenerative Disease, University of Toronto. The fellowship focused upon the application of a variety of genetic strategies to aid our understanding of neurodegenerative disease including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and frontotemporal dementia. She returned to the UK at the end of 2004 and in early 2005 gained employment within the Department of Psychological Medicine, Cardiff University. Thre, she played an important role in directing and pursing molecular genetics research aimed at identifying novel genes for late onset Alzheimer’s disease using research strategies that included direct and indirect association design and involving various genotyping methods. In 2008, she moved to New Zealand and joined the Nutrigenomics NZ team. She works at the University of Auckland and is kept busy with the various genetic association studies she is involved in.
