Howard D. Lindsay

Lancaster University, United Kingdom


Howard D. Lindsay graduated with a B.S. degree (with honors) in biology from the University of Sussex, Brighton, UK, in 1988. In 1989, he obtained his D.Phil. degree from the Laboratory of Chris Ford at Sussex, investigating cell-cycle controls using Xenopus cell-free extracts. He then moved on to postdoctoral positions with Professor Tony Carr at the MRC Cell Mutation Unit and Dr. Jo Murray at the Department of Biochemistry, where he studied DNA checkpoints and repair pathways in the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe. During this time, he started to develop reagents to extend study of DNA checkpoint and genome stability pathways in higher eukaryote model systems. In 2001, he was appointed to a group leader position at the MRC Genome Damage and Stability Center at Sussex. In 2006, he moved his laboratory to Lancaster Medical School at Lancaster University, Lancaster, UK, where his laboratory continues to study DNA damage responses using Xenopus cell-free extracts and other model system.
