Paul Horrocks obtained an undergraduate degree in molecular biology and applied molecular biology from the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST), and he did his Ph.D. studies at Professor Kilbey’s Laboratory at the University of Edinburgh. Graduating in 1996, he then proceeded to postdoctoral positions at Professor Lanzer’s (University of Würzburg, Germany) and Professor Newbold’s (Oxford University) laboratories working on the molecular basis of gene expression, antigenic variation, cytoadhesion, and the genome project for the human malarial parasite Plasmodium falciparum. In 2005, he move to Keele University Institute of Science and Technology in Medicine on a Royal Society Relocation Fellowship, and in 2006, he was appointed as a Lecturer in Keele University School of Medicine. Currently, he serves as a Senior Lecturer and as a Nonclinical Lead for year 4 of the MBChB medical degree program. He is a Member of the Council of the British Society for Parasitology. His research interests principally lie in understanding the molecular basis of gene expression in Plasmodium falciparum.
