Sarah Ross comes from Scotland. She gained her PhD with Professor Sir Peter Downes in Dundee, investigating how oxygen-derived signalling molecules regulate cell functions. She obtained a FEBS long-term fellowship to move to UMC Utrecht, Netherlands in 2008 to research signalling pathways involved in the integrity of tissue architecture with Professor Johannes Bos before returning to Dundee to join Professor Cantrell in early 2013. She has 11 publications with over 300 citations. Sarah is interested in making science accessible through public engagement and supporting the development of young scientists.
