As Professor in Applied Health Genetics, my primary focus is research. I am currently leading the Gen-Equip project, funded via the Erasmusplus programme, to develop education in genetics for primary care practitioners across Europe.

I am also active in improving professional competence in genetic healthcare in Europe and am the inaugural Chair of the European Board of Medical Genetics.
