William H. Colledge
William H. Colledge serves as a Professor of reproductive physiology in the Department of Physiology, Development and Neuroscience at the University of Cambridge. He obtained his B.S. degree in biochemistry and his Ph.D. degree in molecular biology from Imperial College, University of London. After a postdoctoral position in Ottawa, Canada, he joined the laboratory of the Nobel prize winner Professor Sir Martin Evans in Cambridge. He is an expert in the manipulation of mouse embryonic stem cells and the generation of transgenic mice. During his career, he has generated several important transgenic mouse models of human disease including cystic fibrosis and cardiac arrhythmias. His current research is focussed on understanding the neuroendocrine regulation of mammalian reproduction. His laboratory has played a significant part in the seminal discovery that kisspeptin/GPR54 are key regulators of the hypothalamic pituitary gonadal axis.
