Professor Wolf Reik
Professor Wolf Reik, FRS, FMedSci, has joined the Institute’s honorary group leaders programme, marking his migration from group leader at the Institute to a closely-associated research collaborator.
This appointment formalises Professor Reik’s future relationship with the Institute and creates the opportunity for shared research endeavours with the Altos Cambridge Institute of Science.
Dr Simon Cook, Institute Director, commented: “After the appointment of our first honorary group leader in 2020, we have been strengthened and stimulated by their complementary research approaches and perspectives. We are delighted to welcome Wolf as an honorary group leader in this new phase of our relationship and look forward to continuing our close and fruitful partnership.”
Prof. Reik added: “I’m delighted and honoured to be appointed honorary group leader at the Babraham Institute. The Institute has for many years been a supportive and stimulating environment for our lab to thrive and to be able to do exciting science. As an honorary group leader I hope to continue and develop new relationships and collaborations with the wonderful community at Babraham!”
The Institute currently hosts three other honorary group leaders: Professor Kathy Niakan from the Francis Crick Institute and Professor Martin Howard from the John Innes Centre, who are both honorary group leaders within the Institute’s Epigenetics programme, and Professor Valerie O’Donnell, Professor of Biochemistry at Cardiff University, who is an honorary group leader in the Signalling research programme.
