Stuart M Raleigh
Stuart M Raleigh received his honours degree in biochemistry from the University of York in 1991 before starting research at St Bartholomew's Medical School in London. In 1998, he received his Ph.D. degree from De Montfort University, Leicester, UK for conducting research into variant cytochrome P450s that could metabolise novel anticancer prodrugs under hypoxic conditions. After postdoctoral work at the University of Leicester's School of Medicine, he moved to the Department of Cardiovascular Sciences (2002–2005) where he investigated the role of genetic variants that predispose to a range of complex human diseases. In 2005, Dr. Raleigh was appointed as Lecturer of human biology at the University of Northampton. In 2006, he was promoted to Senior Lecturer and in November 2010 Dr. Raleigh was awarded the title of Reader in molecular biology at the University's School of Health. His research interests continue to focus on complex human population genetics. He has a specific interest in genetic variants that influence the risk of musculoskeletal soft tissue injury and pathology. He serves as a Member of the British Society of Human Genetics and The Biochemical Society and sits on various academic committees at the University of Northampton. Dr. Raleigh is an Editorial Board member for Case Reports in Genetics and for the Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery and Research.
