Anton Enright is an Investigator at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute. He was born in Dublin, Ireland, where he studied genetics at Trinity College. After completing his undergraduate degree, Enright studied for his Ph.D. degree at the European Bioinformatics Institute, Hinxton, UK, and the University of Cambridge, UK. Working there with Dr. Christos Ouzounis, he specialized in protein sequence annotation and clustering, the prediction of protein-protein interactions, and visualization and analysis of protein networks. Upon completion of his Ph.D. degree, he moved to the laboratory of Dr. Chris Sander at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. At MSKCC, he turned his attention to the analysis and prediction of regulatory targets for microRNAs. He returned to Cambridge in 2004 to start his own laboratory at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute. His research interests include the large-scale clustering and classification of protein sequences, analysis of regulatory and interaction networks, and the accurate detection of microRNA target interactions.
